Salt Lake City International Airport

Salt Lake City International Airport Overview

Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC) is the 21st busiest airport in North America and the 70th busiest in the world. It serves more than 26 million passengers annually in facilities constructed in the 1950s and '60s to handle half as many travelers.

To align with modern standards, SLC is now undergoing a multi-phase $4 billion redevelopment program. The new airport will accommodate 34 million passengers per year, be outfitted with thoughtful passenger amenities, and meet today’s security, environmental, earthquake safety requirements.

Phase 1 of the new SLC opened in September 2020. It replaced three aging terminals and concourses with a state-of-the-art facility on the same site, and includes a new central terminal building and the west portions of two linear concourses.

Designed by HOK, the new space celebrates Utah’s natural outdoor beauty. The light-filled terminal has 50-foot floor-to-ceiling glass walls that provide expansive views to the airfield and nearby Wasatch Mountains. Earth-toned finishes help connect passengers to city’s western locale.

The F+S Surfaces used on the project echo the area’s colors and textures while being highly resilient—ideal for their use in the elevator interiors and as cladding for waste receptacles, planters, and ticketing, information desk, and rental car counters.
