The Delta Air Lines footprint at Salt Lake City International Airport continues to grow with the opening of 13 new gates on Concourse A, finishing off the gleaming 900,000-square-foot facility that first welcomed customers in September 2020. All flights operating from Concourse A will now board and deplane via jet bridges, eliminating bus operations to remote hardstands.

“The completion of Concourse A comes just ahead of what we anticipate will be a busy holiday and ski travel season,” says Adam Ryan, managing director of Delta Air Lines Salt Lake City operations, in a prepared statement. “It’s a privilege for the 5,400 Delta employees here in Salt Lake City to share this state-of-the-art facility with our customers as we continue to provide them with the elevated experience they have come to expect from Delta.”

In partnership with the Salt Lake City Department of Airports, the finished eastern portion of Concourse A features 22 gates—nine of which opened earlier this summer—bringing the airlines’ gate total to 50 at Salt Lake City. This expansion also includes a new Delta Need Help Center for customers looking for travel assistance, as well as 19 new restaurants and shops for customers to enjoy.

“These new gates and amenities will further elevate the guest experience at the Salt Lake City International Airport for Salt Lakers and visitors from all over the world,” says Salt Lake City Mayor Erin Mendenhall. “Salt Lake City is proud to be a Delta hub in the West and home to one of the top performing airports in the world. The completion of this expansion will provide efficient services and modern facilities for travelers who are eager for a seamless journey.”

Delta Air Lines operates more flights out of Salt Lake City than any other airline combined, serving close to 30,000 customers daily with 237 peak-day flights to 88 destinations as of fall of this year.
