SJC To Build Interim Facility, Four Additional Gates

Norman Y. Mineta San José International Airport (SJC) is building an interim facility with four additional boarding gates. The facility will open in the summer of 2019 and is designed to help accommodate continued passenger growth at SJC.

Interim Gates 31-34 will be constructed and connected to the south end of Terminal B. Once open, the gates will offer additional hold room for 400 passengers and added flight capacity. More flight capacity will improve flight scheduling flexibility and decrease delays.

The interim facility will also offer concessions space and restrooms.

The estimated cost for the project is $50 million, which will be funded with commercial paper. SJC expects to use the interim facility for seven years while concurrent construction for permanent gates and support facilities is underway.

“I appreciate the support of Mayor Liccardo and our council members for giving airport staff the green light to continue to focus on transforming how Silicon Valley travels,” says John Aitken, director of aviation for SJC. “With four more gates, our passengers will continue to enjoy the enhanced customer service levels they have come to expect from our facilities and operation.”
