The new Provo City Airport is designed to meet the needs of Utah County’s growing travel community. The new terminal boasts a 68,000 sq ft terminal with 4 commercial gates. Also included in the design are concessions, seating areas, visitor and viewing lounges, TSA functions, baggage handling systems, rental car facilities, and associated passenger drop-off, and parking. Phase 2 of the project is in process being planned to include 2 elevated concourses with 6 additional gates. The character of the new terminal is reminiscent of a historic main street with the brick facades and window fronts. Black iron is expressed as part of the design with the structure exposed and metal panels being used on the exterior. The impression upon visiting the new terminal is designed to bring about a sense of belonging, echoing Provo City’s tagline of “Welcome Home!”.
