The fourth and final phase of the project includes a new north check-in lobby; a new mezzanine-level security checkpoint; two additional aircraft gates; a new common-use lounge, the Club at SFO, opening June 25th; and a new connecting walkway that links all SFO terminals post-security. New concessions and retail include: Green Apple Books; a 7×7 newsstand; Poke to the Max Hawaiian cuisine; Pronto! grab-and-go fare; Mac cosmetics store; Bay Collection museum store; LEGO store; sit-down cafes Taste of the City; Perry’s and Balboa; and a San Francisco-themed food hall projected to open by the end of 2024. 

“There is no better way to celebrate Pride Month at SFO than the completion of the first airport terminal in the world named for an LGBTQ leader that changed our city and our country,” said San Francisco mayor London Breed. “Harvey Milk Terminal 1 serves as a welcoming beacon to travelers, showcasing the very best ideals and values of San Francisco and what we represent. My thanks go out to the entire SFO team for this milestone achievement.”

“Harvey Milk Terminal 1 represents a new benchmark for the airport experience at SFO,” added airport director Ivar C. Satero. “This facility was designed to be extraordinary in every way… as a place of ease and relaxation, a place of sustainable design and operation, a place of inspiring artwork and museum exhibits, and a place to share the story of pioneering civil rights leader Harvey Milk. The entire SFO family can be truly proud of creating something that will serve our region for decades to come.”
