A First Look Inside SFO's New Terminal 2, On the Brink of Its Debut
How excited should you be for the projected Spring opening of the new Terminal 2 at San Francisco International Airport? So excited! It's actually renovation, but a $400 million dollar one, complete with unique new features like "hydration stations," mood lighting, SFO-focused slow food restaurants (as in the slow food movement, not slow service) and modern airport standards like free WiFi and outlets everywhere.
Virgin America and American Airlines will be taking over the majority of the 14 gates, and the terminal work is finally giving VX the chance to really make the space theirs. They're so thrilled, in fact, that they've been keeping their flyers aware of the coming upgrades via Facebook, and their most recent gallery proves that the place is nearing completion.
Water bottle-filling faucets. AKA "hydration stations."
For now, Terminal 2 is still a hard-hats-required zone, but in just a few more months you can feel free to sit your butt in one of those designer chairs lining the floor-to-ceiling windows.
The photos getting us amped up for the SFO T2 reveal are definitely those of all the outlets and workstations, the surprisingly spa-like bathrooms, the preparations for art installations, and of course the Virgin America check-in and ticketing area with its slick lines and cool lights that respond to the time of day. And let's not forget about the hybrid-preferred parking spaces!
