Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC) completed construction of the new 900,000-square-foot Concourse A in September 2020. Delta continues to grow here with five new gates added this week and a host of flights planned to fill these gates. The new eastern portion of Concourse A will eventually feature 22 gates and 19 restaurants and shops. Additional gates will open later this summer, with all planned to be operational by October 31st. All of the Concourse A gates serve Delta flights.

This summer, Delta will operate over 230 flights from Salt Lake City to around 90 global destinations. It has added frequencies to Austin, Charlotte, Nashville, Philadelphia, and more.

Adam Ryan, Managing Director of Delta’s SLC Operations, said:

Delta operates more flights out of SLC than all other carriers combined and the latest phase of this exciting airport project is complete in time to support one of our busiest summer seasons yet. Delta’s Salt Lake City team of more than 5,000 is ready to get our customers where they want to go and grateful to the Department of Airports for their partnership in helping us to do that even more efficiently.”

Earlier this year, Delta further secured its position as the leading global carrier in Salt Lake City by signing a new lease that extends until 2044 and increases Delta’s gates from 55 to 66 by 2027.

Anthony’s Take: Salt Lake City serves as a great hub for Delta to connect to western cities and smaller locales. It’s good to see Delta’s continued investment here. The new terminal is beautiful with great views of the mountains in the distance.
