New Terminal Announced For Fort Lauderdale Airport & JetBlue Airways
Fort Lauderdale airport, the second largest in South Florida, just behind Miami International has officially announced that a new terminal is on the way. Over 300 million dollars will be poured into the project, that will let the airport see a brand new terminal. Dubbed “terminal 5,” JetBlue Airways will be the the airline that will operate out of the terminal, and oversee the construction.
Parsons connected communities (the builder) president Peter Torrellas said: “Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International airport is one of the fastest-recovering US airports, with passenger traffic approaching 2019 pre-pandemic levels. As we continue a return to air travel, it is critical for airports and airlines alike to prepare for passenger and service expansion.”
“Our aviation experts have served South Florida for more than 20 years and we look forward to building on that legacy in partnership with JetBlue and the Broward County Aviation Department.”
Not date or plans for the terminal have been set yet, but the initial version will include 5 gates, but that will almost certainly expand as time goes on. JetBlue currently operates from terminal 3 at FLL, and they will run a split operation when terminal 5 is complete.
Monorails & Terminal Redesign
Some of the terminal redevelopments have been completed at FLL, but there are huge plans for the future. These plans were announced back in 2018, and work on the terminals themselves soon began. In 2022, the next stage, a terminal 3 partial redesign, as well as terminal 5 plans will begin.
By 2035, the airport plans to have a full new parking and arrival procedure. They plan to add a monorail to connect the terminals, as well as brand new parking garages. Note that we have had no mention of this since 2018. However, some renderings were released.
Looks like someone’s happy ;)
Yessir!!! Fav airline + fav airport = HEAVEN 😇😍
It’s the most new terminal ever 😀😀😀😍😍
on a side note, it bothers me as someone working in marketing that this is a terminal for Jet Blue (and id assume maybe others share) and they feature Delta aircraft in the photo lol
Does this mean an even more of a delay for this airport to be in 3D ? Because I think this is why KORD (O’hare) may not be 3D yet, changes in runway and terminals.
That is not the rendering for terminal five. That’s the renderings for terminal two ;)
Since the contract deal was just signed, no renderings have been released yet. Since terminal 2 is also not gigantic with about 9 gates, in comparison to the other terminals which have 20 to 30 gates each, I used that as the photo. It should be assumed that terminal five should have a somewhat similar, modern look like that. Should have clarified that.
T5 is likely going to be there (with a building, of course)
This would be a tricky question to answer. And I couldn’t answer it because I I’m not a developer, but my guess would be not. This won’t be complete for at least five or six years, so waiting five years to add it wouldn’t make sense. They could just add a new terminal in about five years when it is ready. But again, we don’t know the speed of development at this point so only time will tell.
Makes sense from that perspective, still needed to be JB aircraft haha
Terminal 2 is the delta terminal 🤦♂️
But yes, they should have included JetBlue aircraft because they are better than delta.
all of a sudden it got personal
When it’s FLL, everything is personal.
I traveled in both and I prefer Delta over jetBlue. But I like jetBlue, too
