Do You Still Know The Way To Terminal A In San Jose?

We doubt that the renovations to the San Jose International Airport are what finally helped Microsoft and Yahoo come together in search engine marriage, but it can’t hurt that the face of Silicon Valley is getting a little nip and tuck. Those in hardhats have been busy renovating older parts of the airports and building some totally new facilities. All this in hopes of bringing the airport squarely into the 21st century.

The first six gates in the new Terminal B Concourse opened last month and Southwest was quick to claim them as their own. There’s still plenty of work to be done here, and the whole thing won’t be completed until 2010, but at least travelers will get a sneak peak into what’s to come.

Also coming soon is The Sharks Cage, it's a sports bar type establishment, named for the local professional hockey team. This sounds like a good place to kill some time in case your flight is delayed, or if you can’t figure out where to catch your flight amidst all the construction signage.

Starting this weekend things over in Terminal A are getting a little shake-up. The gates will be renumbered, basically so that they make more sense, and that things are consistent throughout the airport. So like we’ve said before, make sure that you check those boarding passes and the departures information, or else you’ll be flying elsewhere. We'll let you know when things are all done, but for now, enjoy the preview and be patient.
