The New SLC: Rebuilding for the Future
Building a new airport is a massive undertaking, but the end result was well worth the effort. Prior to opening The New SLC, Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC) served more than 26 million passengers a year from facilities that were designed 50 years ago, which were intended to serve half as many travelers.
A lot has changed since the early 1960s. SLC has grown into a hub airport, with many flights arriving and leaving around the same time. Security needs have evolved, and there is a need for buildings that meet earthquake safety standards.
SLC's former facilities served the community well, but it’s time to make way for the next generation of airport design.
