Airlines at Terminal 1

  • Southwest (Domestic Flights)
  • Southwest (Int'l Check-in)
  • Departure gates have been permanently renumbered and there will be rotating gate closures during construction. Be sure to check display monitors for the latest gate updates.
  • Many new concessions are now open. Check out all your dining options on the "Where to Eat Now" section of this page.
  • Throughout 2017, watch for construction barricades outside Terminal 1 on both the east and west ends of the Upper/Departures Level, and on east end of the Lower/Arrivals Level.
  • Much of the drop-off lane at Terminal 1 on the Upper/Departures Level is closed, so expect delays. Consider dropping off between Terminals 1 and 2 instead.
  • During construction, sidewalks outside Terminal 1 on both levels will be impacted, but we'll have temporary sidewalk areas set up and signage to direct you.
  • Other Eats: Waiting for your flight? A valid boarding pass for same-day departure gets you into any terminal for other dining and retail options.
  • Keep Movin': If dropping off passengers at Terminal 1, drive to the farthest end of the drop-off lane after the construction barrier where it's often less crowded.
