Terminals

The airport has over 120 aircraft gates in three Terminals (2, 3, 4). The airport administration states that the designation Terminal 1 has been “retired”, and that it did not wish to renumber the other terminals since passengers were already familiar with the numbers in place. Free wireless internet access is available in all terminals.

   Terminal 2
Terminal 2 has 9 gates (numbered inconsecutively 1–13 and two additional lettered gates C & D) and three parking slots. It was designed by the Phoenix architectural firms of Weaver & Drover and Lescher & Mahoney and opened in 1962.[13] This terminal includes a mural by French-American artist Paul Coze. In November 2006, a Military and Veterans Hospitality Room, sponsored by the Phoenix Military and Veterans Commission, was opened in Terminal 2. It has since related to Terminal 4 as the new USO. This terminal has undergone two renovation projects. The first was completed in 1988.[14] The second project, which cost $24 million and was designed by DWL Architects + Planners, Inc., was completed in 2007.

Terminal 2 is expected to close after the completion of the Terminal 3 South Concourse expansion. The Terminal 3 South Concourse expansion will add nine additional gates to the concourse, fully replacing Terminal 2.

   Terminal 3
The 880,000 square-feet, $35 million Terminal 3, designed by DWL Architects + Planners, Inc., broke ground in January 1977 opened in October 1979 and has 17 gates, separated into two concourses by a central building outside of security.[5] [13] The south concourse houses gates 2–9 and the north concourse houses gates 15–26. The terminal was remodeled in 1997. Its only lounge – Delta’s Crown Room Club – was closed on April 30, 2008.

A future three-part construction and renovation project will combine Terminal 2 and Terminal 3, and update the facilities. Part One will expand security checkpoints on both sides of Terminal 3. Part Two will provide additional concession space for Terminal 3 North, expand the curbside area, and separate ticketing and baggage claim, moving ticketing to the second level of the terminal while expanding the baggage claim on the first level. Part Three will be a brand new Terminal 3 South as a 15 gate, linear terminal. This would discontinue all operations from Terminal 2 as it would be phased out. The project is expected to begin in 2014 and be completed by 2020.

   Terminal 4 (Barry M. Goldwater Terminal)
Terminal 4, also designed by DWL Architects + Planners, Inc., opened in 1990 and has more than 90 gates, divided into seven satellite concourses connected behind security. Three northern concourses (gates A1-A14, A17-A30, B1-B14) serve American Airlines, American Eagle, US Airways and US Airways Express operated flights. The northeastern concourse “B” includes the international gates with Customs and Border Control facilities for International inbound flights (B23-B28) serving Aeroméxico Connect, Air Canada, Air Canada Rouge, British Airways, Volaris, Westjet, US Airways and US Airways Express with B15-B22 serving US Airways and US Airways Express. The three southern concourses (gates C1-C10, C11-C20, D1-D8) serve Southwest Airlines exclusively. Terminal 4 handles about 80% of the traffic at the airport.
