SALT LAKE CITY — New rental car facilities have opened for business at Salt Lake City International Airport.

The Quick Turn Around (QTA) building allows rental car providers to wash, vacuum and fuel returned vehicles so they’ll be ready for the next wave of customers.

“Most people don’t even know this new facility is here because you can’t see it,” said Mike Williams, project director.

The new facilities also include three rental service site (RSS) buildings. According to a press release, the facilities are occupied by seven rental car tenants.

Williams said the public will begin seeing changes to airport entrances and exits later this year.

“Around the middle of this year, some of the entrance and exit roads to the airport will begin to shift around. And so, over the next several years, as we build the new roads, those roads will kind of move around and shift,” Williams said. “There’ll be some slight changes, but everybody will still be able to get to the airport just like they do today.”

The new facilities are part of a $1.8 billion revelopment program at the airport. The first phase of the program is expected to be completed in 2020 and the second phase is expected to be completed in 2023.
