SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake City International Airport held a grand opening for its Concourse B Tuesday morning.
"Concourse B opened this morning with a total of 21 gates to house Alaska, American, Delta, Frontier, JetBlue, Southwest and United. Six weeks ago on Sept. 15, the majority of The New SLC opened to rave reviews. Delta Air Lines currently occupies the 25 gates in Concourse A-west, including six international gates," a news release from the airport said.
Concourse B has three new restaurants:
- Gourmandaise: Euro Diner and Bakery
- Uinta Brewing Company
- Wasatch Brew Pub
The concourse also has several new shops:
- Liberty Park Market
- Hip & Humble
- The Salt Lake Tribune
Additional shops and restaurants—including Pick Up Stix, Smashburger, Briggs & Riley, Utah! and XpressSpa—are expected to be added.
A 990-foot tunnel originally built in 2004 connects concourses A and B. SLC-based artist Tracy O'Very Covey painted murals representing Utah's summer and fall seasons in the tunnel, and Texas-based artist Daas painted murals representing Utah's winter and spring seasons.
The concourse has one gate for Alaska Airlines, two gates for American Airlines, seven gates for Delta Air Lines, one gate for Frontier Airlines, one gate for JetBlue Airways, four gates for Southwest Airlines and two gates for United Airlines.
Three other "city gates" are available for various airlines as needed.
Every seat in the gate area has a power outlet to allow air travelers to charge their electronic devices.
The concourse has eight restrooms and passengers are never more than 150 feet from the nearest restroom facility.
