Terminal 1 Concourse A Is Now Open

The partnership between Southwest Airlines and Broward County to bring a new world-class experience for passengers who use Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport's Terminal 1 has landed. The new Concourse A facility is now open; bringing additional gates, and the additional capacity of the world's most modern international processing facility for air travelers. We know this is a few days later than originally announced and we apologize but we want the best facility for our customers. We appreciate the patience of our stakeholders who are as excited about this new chapter as we are.
