The Country’s Newest Airport Is Right Here In Utah, And It’s Much Larger Than Before

If you travel out of state very often, odds are good that you’re familiar with the Salt Lake International Airport. Utah has several small, regional airports, but we have just one international airport, and it typically services 26 million passengers per year.

The original airport was built in 1968, but it was only meant to handle about half as many passengers as it has today. Its original buildings weren’t earthquake-safe, and its security areas were poorly designed to handle the new protocols that came out after the 9/11 tragedy. In short, it was time for a new airport. On September 15th, the public got its first look at the airport’s new terminal and concourse.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
