There will also be discussion of airline-related issues at the next meeting of the Midway Community Planning Group (MCPG) 4 p.m. on Wednesday, June 17 at San Diego Community College West City Campus, 3249 Fordham St., Room 208.
“We will have a presentation from the airport about the new rental car center currently under construction on Pacific Highway,” said MCPG chair Melanie Nickel. “The presentation will be specifically about the external appearance of the building, as seen from the Pacific Highway / I-5 / Bankers Hill side. It’s what the airport describes as the ‘public art’ on that side. Many of us have wondered what the facility will look like from our communities.”
Relocation of service from the Commuter Terminal to the main airport terminals was necessitated, in part, by airlines that fly to Los Angeles from the Commuter Terminal replacing smaller aircraft with larger, more efficient planes. To better accommodate these larger aircraft and streamline the passenger experience, airlines have relocated to the following locations:
• United flights to Los Angeles operated by United Express now provide service to Terminal 2 West, using the airlines’ existing facilities in Terminal 2.
• American Airlines flights to Los Angeles operated by American Eagle have relocated to Terminal 2 East, also using the airlines’ existing facilities.
• Seaport Airlines has moved its air service to the west end of Terminal 1.
Passengers on flights that previously used the Commuter Terminal will now have the opportunity to experience the new dining and shopping options and other amenities offered at Terminals 1 and 2.
The Commuter Terminal will continue to serve as the administrative offices for the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority. Future plans for the building will be determined as part of the Airport Authority’s Airport Development Plan, which is currently underway.
