The San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and United Airlines unveiled the newly-renovated Terminal 3 East Concourse, featuring a dramatic 53,000 square foot expansion that creates additional circulation space, new concessions, and enhanced amenities for airport guests. Terminal 3 East features eight new retail and dining outlets, including small businesses based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The $253 million renovation, open for passengers on Wednesday, November 18, 2015, is comprised of a concourse connecting Boarding Areas E and F, a consolidated central security checkpoint, three additional aircraft boarding gates, and a new United Club location.
Free Wi-Fi, 230 power outlets, and 200 USB outlets will allow guests to stay connected and productive. Four new art installations, provided through the San Francisco Arts Commission, along with lounge-style seating areas, transform the space into a relaxing, inspiring environment. Guest restrooms even feature private changing rooms, an unexpected perk.
“The latest updates at San Francisco create a truly premium experience for our customers,” said Sandra Pineau-Boddison, United’s senior vice president of customers. “With the area’s modern design and amenities, San Francisco, the nation’s top trans-Pacific gateway, will continue to offer the traveler-friendly environment our customers expect at one of the country’s most prominent airports.”
At just over 6,000 square feet, the newest United Club at San Francisco International Airport will offer a panoramic view of airport operations and a gallery of photos of United’s history. Comfortable seating can accommodate more than 130 people who will be able to enjoy a complimentary menu with seasonal choices, such as fresh zucchini, yellow squash and cherry tomatoes; hearty butternut squash soup; dressed spinach salad; and a variety of fresh meats and cheeses.
Scheduled to open on November 18, the new Terminal 3 East club will operate in addition to United Club locations in Terminal 3’s Concourse F and in the airport’s International Terminal G.
Like remodeled United Club locations in Atlanta, Chicago, San Diego, Seattle, Boston and London, the latest San Francisco location will offer additional work stations and abundant power outlets for customers to work with greater ease and comfort. Members may also enjoy complimentary beverages and Wi-Fi, as well as premium wines and spirits.
