The Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport

The Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport is Broward County's largest economic engine. This month, the Broward County Commission voted to partner with Southwest Airlines to renovate Terminal 1 to construct five new gates. This will add many new international and domestic flights to our airport.

Currently, about 23 million people fly in and out of the airport each year and the renovation is estimated to bring an additional 1 million passengers to our airport yearly. Those passengers will likely generate an additional $25 million per year in airline landing fees and more than $300 million per year to Broward County's economy. The project will cost approximately $300 million. However, no tax dollars or federal or state dollars will be used as the entire cost is being funded through airline fees.
