In a briefing this month with the City Council for the solicitation and bidding for contractors and planners, officials with the San Antonio International Airport revealed the details of its $2.5 billion expansion plan which includes a new terminal.

The funding for the terminal development program is expected to come from the annual federal airport Infrastructure grants for the next five years, totaling to $59 million.

As noted by San Antonio Report:

The terminal development program encompasses the first set of projects included in the 20-year Strategic Development Plan that was approved by City Council in Nov. 2021. Those projects include new gates already under construction, a facility for boarding aircraft directly from the tarmac, a transportation center and parking garage, and runway and pavement improvements.

The first phase of a new 17-gate Terminal C is also in the works with construction set to start in 2024 and completion expected in 2028.

In the coming months, airport officials also will hold pre-solicitation meetings and invite bids for several high-profile contracts valued at over $210 million. Those will be solicitations for an executive program manager, master architect, program management/construction management, on-call general engineering consultants, pavement management maintenance services, a ground loading facility and baggage handling system, and more.

In addition, a request for proposals for new concessions in Terminal C will be released in the fall.
