Click the video above to see what area leaders are saying about Fresno’s $127 million airport expansion, which broke ground on Friday.
Highlights of the expansion include:
- New Terminal Concourse B with two dual-use passenger bridges to facilitate domestic and international boarding, larger hold rooms, and more areas for shopping and dining.
- Expanded TSA passenger screening area that will enhance passenger circulation and reduce wait times.
- A new international arrival facility that will triple the current size and improve the experience for international travelers.
- A state-of-the-art airline baggage handling system with added capacity for faster processing.
The terminal expansion is expected to open to the public in fall 2025.
It is funded through a combination of infrastructure grants, Federal Aviation Administration grants, passenger fees, Measure C, the CARES Act, TSA grants, and airport revenue bonds.
Fresno Yosemite International Airport continues to experience strong passenger growth and reached a milestone in 2022 with more than 2.1 million travelers — a 12% increase over the previous year.
Fresno Yosemite International Airport and Fresno Chandler Executive Airport are municipally owned entities operating as self-supporting enterprises.
