About Salt Lake City Airport (SLC)

Salt Lake City International Airport is an international airport near the city's outskirts. After completing ongoing renovations in 2020, SLC unveiled a new, state-of-the-art terminal to the public, replacing its outdated facilities. The current terminal took six years to complete and features two concourses with a total of forty-five gates. As a result, the map of Salt Lake City Airport may not look the same in the near future. That's because two further concourses and forty more gates are expected to open soon.

The Salt Lake City Airport is the United States twenty-fifth busiest airport, with more than 330 thousand planes using its four runways per year. Over twenty-five million passengers use SLC annually for both boarding and disembarking. That's a huge number that equates to almost 60,000 passengers using the terminal every day. The airport often runs out of spots in the official SLC parking garages due to the massive passenger number. Therefore, you might want to book an offsite SLC parking spot ahead of your travels to avoid hassles.

SLC is the entry point for many skiers and snowboarders to Utah because it is just an hour away from ten major ski resorts. In addition, temple Square, Utah's number one tourist destination, is also located there, bringing in an estimated 3–5 million visitors each year.

SLC Airport Terminals

On the Salt Lake City Airport map, you'll see that the former five concourses have been replaced with two linear concourses that will relieve passenger congestion and allow for faster connections after renovations.

The new main terminal is located at the airport's southern end and is serviced by a new four-lane road system for passenger pick-up/drop-off and ground transportation. In addition, a new parking garage has been built across the street and is linked to the terminal by a pedestrian bridge. The Gateway Center, which is right next to the parking garage, has quick-service airline check-in counters and vehicle rental facilities.

The terminal is divided into three levels. International arrivals is on level 1, while security and baggage claim is on level 2. Check-in is on level 3. (Please refer to the Salt Lake City Airport terminal map given above.) After passing through security, you'll arrive at The Plaza, where you'll find a nice range of restaurants and stores and an entrance to the Delta Sky Club on level 3.

How to get around Salt Lake City Airport

Unless coming on an international aircraft, travelers do not need to depart and re-clear security for flight connections because an underground tunnel links both concourses within the secure area.

Taxis operate from the airport, but the lack of pricing regulation has sparked criticism. Taxis are frequently not metered, and passengers have complained about being charged exorbitant prices when not agreed upon at the outset of the voyage.

Although the airport claims that maximum charges for certain zones are enforced ($25 for flights within 500 East and $30 for journeys outside of 500 East), some passengers have complained about being charged these maximum restrictions for only a few miles. There is no regulation outside of these zones, so make sure to fix a rate before you leave!

The ground transportation section is located on level 1 outside of the main terminal and is where drivers may pick up passengers. At the check-in counter, passengers can be dropped off on level 3.
