In the Spring 2011, Philadelphia International Airport began work on the $117 million expansion and renovation of Terminal F. Since opening in 2001 to accommodate US Airways Express, Terminal F has become one of the Airport’s busiest terminals with 16.7% of PHL passengers using its facilities.
This expansion and renovation project will enhance passenger services, facilities and airline operations in Terminal F. The main components of the project entail:
- A new and expanded “central hub” to accommodate additional concessions and centralize airline operations
- Reconfiguration of the security checkpoint, doubling the number of security lanes and accommodating the latest TSA security equipment
- A new connector between Terminals E and F completing the secure-side connection of Terminals A thru F
- A new baggage claim building on the Arrivals Road at Terminal F featuring 2 carousels and providing convenient access to parking, ground transportation and SEPTA rail service
The Terminal F Expansion and Renovation Project will add approximately 68,000 square feet of space to the existing terminal, increasing the total square footage by about 33%.
Targeted completion: Fall 2015
