FAT Begins Terminal Expansion

Fresno Yosemite International Airport (FAT) broke ground on a $147 million major terminal expansion project to meet the current and future air travel demands for the city of Fresno and California’s Central Valley. The terminal expansion will include a new concourse wing, expanded passenger screening checkpoint, a new Federal Inspection Station for international arrivals and more dining and retail options.

The FAT Forward terminal expansion is set to open to the public in fall 2025.

“Building for the future with the first major improvement to the airport in more than 20 years is a testament to increased travel demand through FAT over the years and the continued confidence our airline partners recognize in the Fresno market,” said Henry Thompson, FAT aviation director. “More travelers flying through Fresno demonstrates the need for even more air service and today’s groundbreaking on a new terminal expansion will position FAT to accommodate additional airlines and flight operations, and more passengers.
