The Progress at KPDX, Continued (KPDX Next) (Tracking Thread)

KPDX Next



As my last topic on this was auto closed due to the 90-day rule, I am making this as a boatload of new and major developments in the construction at Portland International Airport.

If some of you have not seen, Portland International Airport has decided to demolish/remodel Concourse A. The project has been named, PDX Next. The details can be found in the article below:

The main website for the project is located here:

Also, for a fun little read:


Concourse E Progess

If you are continuing to wonder about the progress of the new Concourse, here it is:

Glass has been added in as they are continuing to work. One of the people in charge of the project, (who works at Skanska) actually invited me and a few spotters to check it out some time. I have been in contact with him and we are looking into it.


The construction at the new concourse.

This is an inside view of the planning of the upcoming terminal. Many new changes are still to come as a new terminal will be coming in Concourse A 2.0.

Also, a spray of new art has popped up in the airport. I did not want to edit this in, as it would take to long.

Also, this is a picture of the fully completed airport. This is at least what is expected of it.

Yes, this is actually what is expected of the airlines for it. Legit the airplanes are just aircraft without the logos. Even a few Q-400s there.

Are those…

77Ws?

Pretty much yeah.

Now if they only didn’t make the AA passengers coming in from Phoenix walk so far from gate C19.

Umm, what?

Anyways I hope all goes well over there.

AA is repositioning their gates, so that most likely will not be a problem anymore.

Just in time!

Even more news! Incheon Airport has sign an MOU with KPDX for a possible route expansion to Korea! New international routes are popping up for the fast growing airport. It is unknown if the route will become a thing soon and which airline will serve it. (I am praying Korean does. Not Delta, because it is quite annoying barely having any international airlines)

Yesterday, November 13, 2019, was the last day of Concourse A’s operation. The last flight to operate out of Concourse A was Alaska (Skywest) 3368. The flight was operated by N195SY out of Gate A3. Now, the Concourse is closed and will be demolished. 😔


N195SY came up to PDX from SJC as AS3371! 😃

There’s rumors circulating there will supposedly be an international announcement on Tuesday.

If true, I’m speculating it could be British Airways to London, Japan Airlines/ZIPAIR to Tokyo, or Korean Air to Seoul.

Just a rumor…

Honestly, I’d take any international flight right now. We already have Delta flights to London and Tokyo, but I really would love to see a flight to Korea. Guess I’ll just have to keep my fingers crossed.

@TaipeiGuru You got your wish.

As it says, British Airways has finally announced service directly to London Heathrow from KPDX! Big wow moment as we actually now will get 787s on a regular basis!
