When The New SLC Airport opens in September 2020, it will be unforgettable for a number of reasons. There will be less congestion—both curbside and at the gates—there will be plenty of places to plug-in, plus noteworthy shops and restaurants. But perhaps what will remain with passengers long after their flights have departed are the art installations planned for the new facility.
Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC) is expecting an increase in the number of passengers Oct. 16, 17 and 18, when local schools are out for fall break. Upwards of 30,000 passengers each day are expected to travel through airport security screening during this time.
