The Airline Terminal welcomes 720,000 passengers a year.
The new Airline Terminal opened on August 18th, 2011! The $63 million project includes a new aircraft parking ramp, a new airline terminal building including site preparation and soil stabilization, relocation and rehabilitation of the 1942 portion of the existing terminal, a new short term parking lot and roadway. The 72,000 square foot terminal was designed in the tradition of the Spanish Colonial Revival architectural style which defines the City of Santa Barbara’s local culture and sense of place.
The new terminal was designed as a sustainable structure and may be eligible for a Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) Gold rating once all of the improvement projects are complete. (Please see attached diagram for phase three construction). PHASE 3 PLANS
