Designs unveiled for South Terminal project at Austin-Bergstrom International

A series of design renderings have been released by LoneStar Airport Holdings, a subsidiary of investment firm Oaktree Capital Group, detailing the transformation the South Terminal at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport in Texas.

The US$12m project will see the complete renovation of the South Terminal to create a stylish retro area for passengers to enjoy prior to departure. The 30,000ft² facility will include three parking gates; eight check-in counters; TSA checkpoints; checked-baggage screening capabilities; a baggage claim area; and passenger hold room. The South Terminal will also have a separate entrance to the rest of the airport, which will be surrounded by a series of white canopies protecting travelers from the elements.

The project is being developed as a public-private initiative between Austin’s Department of Aviation and LoneStar Airport Holdings. The new terminal is scheduled for completion by 2017.

Jeff Pearse, CEO of LoneStar Airport Holdings, said, “Ground-level aircraft boarding invokes the golden age of mid-century air travel, when passengers walked across the tarmac to board their flights. That golden age became the basis for our interior design. Mid-century cues in furniture and finishes, as well as utilizing textures and colors native to the Texas Hill Country, will provide Austin travelers with an airport experience as unique as our city.”
