Sacramento International Airport (SMF) embarked upon a major expansion program to meet the facility and operational needs of passengers and airline tenants. Initial work was developed in conjunction with the airport master plan to define the facility requirements for the replacement of the original passenger terminal constructed in 1967 and support the current and forecast passenger traffic through 2020. The new Central Terminal B was conceived and designed as a 425,000-square-foot landside terminal supported by a 315,000-square-foot airside concourse building, connected by an Automated People Mover (APM) system.

Ease of mobility for passengers.

The facility was designed with flexibility in mind by providing a separation of departure and arrival activities, and incorporating an in-line EDS bag screening system, state of the art passenger screening checkpoint, a 60,000-square-foot concession program, and a new international arrivals facility to process up to 400 passengers per hour.
