SFO Stepping it Up and Going Green


The new home for American Airlines and Virgin America at SFO International airport is set to reopen in April of this year making travel to and from San Francisco even more convenient.

The $383 million renovation of San Francisco International Airport’s Terminal 2 (T2) is scheduled to be complete by April 9, 2011, with the first flights commencing on April 14, 2011.  The new home for American Airlines and Virgin America, T2 will be one of the most sustainable and modern airport terminals in the United States.

These extensive renovations make SFO’s T2 the first airport terminal in the United States to be LEED® Gold-Registered. Not only will it feature natural light, cleaner air, paperless ticketing, energy efficiency and sustainable building materials such as terrazzo flooring with recycled glass chips, recycled-content carpet and innovative and efficient use of structural steel, it will also highlight SF-focused slow food restaurants and modern airport standards like free WiFi and outlets.
