San Francisco International Airport (SFO) has announced that the opening of the next phase of Harvey Milk Terminal 1 will be postponed due to the COVID-19 crisis.
The airport remains open, but the next phase of the new terminal will not be activated for public use for at least four weeks. San Francisco will not decide on a new opening date for this phase until at least mid-April.
As a result of this postponement: all American Airlines check-in and gate activities will remain in Terminal 2; and JetBlue and Southwest will remain in their current ticket counter and baggage claim locations, while continuing to depart from their current gates in Harvey Milk Terminal 1.
In accordance with the San Francisco Health Order, which defines construction related to airport operations as essential, construction crews will continue to work on the Harvey Milk Terminal 1 project, to ensure that the next phase is ready for activation once a new public opening date has been established.
