It’s been a year since the phase one completion of the all-new Salt Lake City International Airport. Reimagined using traveler data, industry insights and state-of-the-art technologies, the rebuild was designed to improve the traveler experience and maintain a more sustainable footprint. Know what to expect before you go using these helpful tips.

TAKE TIME TO PLAN
From parking your car to locating your gate, get familiarized with the new layout and offerings using the SLC Airport’s interactive map on slcairport.com.

GET ANSWERS ON THE GO
Didn’t have time to plan ahead? Simply download the SLC International app and utilize its way finding feature. Type in your gate number and you will be directed to your gate with a map that will also point out nearby shops and bathrooms. You’ll even be able to see estimated wait times at key checkpoints like security.

FIND YOUR GATE FIRST,THEN CHECK OUT THE SHOPS
Looking at patterns of how travelers move through the airport, many prefer to find their seats before exploring the concourse. Th e design team decided to incorporate clear visual cues to help alert travelers when a section of interest is near. Aft er the moving walkway, you’ll notice the floor color and the lighting change to signal you are entering an area containing restrooms, restaurants and shops.

RE-CHARGE WHILE YOU WAIT
Long gone are the days where charging your phone meant hitting the outlet jackpot. Aft er a traveler survey revealed most wanted more outlets, the design team placed a plug-in charger at every seat.

EAT LOCAL
Th ere is a plethora of delicious, local fare found throughout the new airport. Try out some of Utah’s favorite hotspots like Gourmandise, Fillings & Emulsions, Granatos or Roosters. If a brewpub is more your style, pick up a pint from Squatters, Wasatch Brewery or Unita Brewing Co.

CUE THE GRAND ARRIVAL
Before the rebuild, the baggage area was heavily congested with groups welcoming home travelers from the military, missions, or epic adventures. Th is is why the airport created a designated Greeting Room separate from the baggage claim, complete with a fi replace, exhibit wall and a rendering of the world map—a relic from the original airport. Soon there will also be a Blue Lemon restaurant adjacent, where guests can enjoy a drink and bite as they wait.
