Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport officially opened its new Concourse G in Terminal 4 on Tuesday July 14. It handled its first flight, a Spirit Airlines flight from Myrtle Beach, at 0950.
The opening of Concourse G is part of the first Western phase of a $450 million modernisation project underway in the terminal. The next – Eastern – phase is scheduled for completion in 2018.
The new concourse has a larger concession area covering approximately 34,000 sq ft (3,158m²) with new restaurants, shops, seating areas and toilet facilities
Airport spokesman Greg Meyer commented: “It’s transitioning from a 1980s facility into a modern terminal that will offer a much better experience for the traveling public.”
