San Antonio International Airport has started an 18-month renovation project on the nearly 30-year old Terminal A facility. New finishes, infrastructure upgrades and completely modernized restrooms will provide a customer experience consistent with the airport’s Terminal B, which opened in November 2010. The project also allows for access and queuing improvements to the TSA security checkpoint in the popular terminal. Estimated to cost $35 million, work in the terminal will be phased and primarily occur at night to limit interruption of service and convenience.
In addition to the Terminal A renovations throughout the construction phases, the Airport will be introducing new eateries. Host International, Inc., an industry leader in operating airport concession programs, will serve as the prime concessionaire, managing and operating restaurant and retail stores at the Airport. Included in Host’s contract are ten food and beverage locations and seven retail stores.
The first concessions scheduled to open in June 2013 are: La Gloria, La Tapenade, Mission City Icehouse and Auntie Anne’s. For more information about the new concessions and renovation progress, visit Airport website.
