The San Francisco International Airport (SFO) opened the final section of the award-winning $2.5B Harvey Milk Terminal 1 today.

This fourth and final phase includes a new north check-in lobby, a new mezzanine-level security checkpoint, two additional aircraft gates, four new concessions and a new connecting walkway that links all SFO terminals post-security.

Mayor Breed said: “There is no better way to celebrate Pride Month at SFO than the completion of the first airport terminal in the world named for an LGBTQ leader that changed our city and our country.

“Harvey Milk Terminal 1 serves as a welcoming beacon to travelers, showcasing the very best ideals and values of San Francisco and what we represent.

“My thanks go out to the entire SFO team for this milestone achievement.”

Ivar C. Satero, Airport Director said: “Harvey Milk Terminal 1 represents a new benchmark for the airport experience at SFO.

“This facility was designed to be extraordinary in every way… as a place of ease and relaxation, a place of sustainable design and operation, a place of inspiring artwork and museum exhibits, and a place to share the story of pioneering civil rights leader Harvey Milk.

“The entire SFO family can be truly proud of creating something that will serve our region for decades to come.”
