Concourse A now open at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport

Travelers coming and going from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport will now see a new concourse.

The recently opened Concourse A includes five gates and will service both domestic and international flights. So far, Southwest Airlines and Silver Airways operate out of the five gates, but eventually more airlines will be added.  The project cost $200 million to build and includes 300,000 square feet. There is an area for customs to serve international travelers.

“Our goal for this project is to improve the customer experience through our terminal,” said Marc Gambrill, acting assistant director of aviation airport development. “With the added gates, we will be able to offer more domestic and international flights.”

Concourse A will include restaurant and retail space along with the seats where electronic devices can charge.

Also underway is a $133 million terminal modernization project. When completed, Concourses A, B and C will connect to each other and there will be one check point for gates and to board aircraft.  Courses B and C are getting renovated and terrazzo flooring is being installed. This project is expected to be completed in the fall.

The expansion of Terminal 4 at Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport includes replacement of the original gates, construction connector from Terminal 3 and an updated baggage handling system.

Terminal Four construction is close to completion. The western phase is ready and open and the eastern phase will be open by the end of the year. The work is administrated by the Broward County Aviation Department, which operates Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, and is funded from revenues generated by the airport, not Broward County taxpayers.
