SFO’s Terminal 2 – First U.S. Terminal to be Certified LEED® Gold

On December 1, 2011, San Francisco International Airport’s (SFO) Terminal 2 (T2) was certified LEED® Gold by the U.S. Green Business Council (USGBC), making it the country’s first airport terminal to achieve that goal. Proving that sustainability can co-exist with traveler comfort and convenience, the 640,000 square-foot T2 is widely considered to be the country’s most traveler-focused and modern terminal. The terminal reopened to the public in April 2011 after a two-year, $383 million renovation utilizing a design-build partnership between Turner Construction and Gensler. T2 is home to American Airlines and Virgin America. The design of T2 is a notable departure from most airport terminals which were built decades ago. T2 is customized for today’s modern travelers with sustainable features that elevate the travel experience. Many of these features are evocative of San Francisco and its reputation as a leader in sustainability and technology, such as the wide array of natural and organic culinary offerings; more than 400 computer plug-in outlets and intuitive, comfortable work-station seating; eco-friendly art installations from local artists that highlight the natural world and double as children’s play areas; and convenient “hydration stations” which allow travelers to re-fill reusable water bottles post-security. Moreover, many unseen features dramatically enhance the traveler experience without an adverse impact on the environment. For instance, travelers breathe cleaner air thanks to a special displacement ventilation system; natural sunlight fills the terminal instead of artificial lighting; and a paperless ticketing system throughout the terminal adds convenience and saves trees. Developed by the USGBC, LEED® is an internationally-recognized green building certification program that provides building owners with a framework for implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions. LEED® promotes a “whole building” approach by encouraging performance in several key areas such as water efficiency, resource conservation, energy efficiency, etc. T2’s LEED® Gold designation reflects that the terminal was renovated from an existing structure originally built in 1954.

Virgin America Launces Nonstop Service to Palm Springs

Sir Richard Branson was at SFO on December 15, 2011, to launch Virgin America’s new route between SFO and Palm Springs (PSP). The non-stop flight departs SFO daily at 4:35 p.m. and arrives at PSP at 6:05 p.m. The return flights departs PSP at 6:50 p.m. and arrives at SFO at 8:25 p.m.

“We’re pleased to be growing and bringing new competition into markets like Palm Springs and the surrounding desert resort cities. When we enter markets with less competition, we see fares drop and service improve. This area is a world-class travel destination – and visitors and residents alike deserve more air travel options,” said David Cush, President and Chief Executive Officer of Virgin America. “We hope our service will be a breath of fresh air for residents and for travelers to the desert oasis.” For more information about Virgin America’s Palm Springs service, visit

SFO’s Passenger Traffic Continues to Show Strong Growth

SFO is pleased to report that for the eighth year in a row, despite a struggling economy, it remains one of the few airports in the United States to see sustained growth. In 2011, SFO’s passenger count was 41.0 million, a 4.2% increase over 2010 and just shy of its all-time high of 41.1 million passengers set in 2000. Between December 16, 2011 and January 2, 2012, an estimated two million passengers passed through the Airport for the Holiday season, marking a 5% increase compared with the same period last year. “We are pleased that carriers, both domestic and international, continue to grow in these uncertain economic times,” said Airport Director, John L. Martin. According to Airports Council International, in 2010, SFO ranked 9th in North America and 23rd in the world in terms of total passenger volume.

Google and SFO Partner to Bring Indoor Maps to Travelers

San Francisco International Airport and Google have teamed up to provide indoor online maps of SFO’s terminal complex for anyone using Google Maps on an Android device. Google Map users can now browse the Airport terminal floor plans for restaurants, shops, ATMs, and other customer service amenities, and use the Google Map’s My Location feature to see their detailed location indoors via the familiar”blue dot” icon. “San Francisco International Airport’s commitment to unparalleled customer service has taken another quantum leap with our partnership with Google,” said John L. Martin, Airport Director. “Now, all Android users will have at their fingertips up to date information for the nearest restaurant, ATM, bookstore, or any other customer convenience.” “Travelers can now use Google Maps for Android to more quickly and effortlessly figure out where they are and what’s around them when they’re indoors,” said Steve Lee, Director of Product Management at Google. “We’re thrilled to work with San Francisco International Airport to improve people’s airport experience and help them determine various places within the venue they might want to go – be it a specific gate, ticket counter, restaurant, or just a restroom or ATM.” Google’s indoor maps are seamlessly integrated into Google Maps. There is no separate app to download and no need to download individual areas. As the user zooms into SFO, the map will automatically display the indoor floor plan with labeled points of interest. A tool on the right hand side of the screen will also show the user which floor they are on, and will dynamically change if the user goes up or down a level.

SFO Concession Sales Soar

San Francisco International Airport’s concession sales have far exceeded expectations in fiscal year 2010/11 by a blistering 13.1% as compared with fiscal year 2009/10. The four primary concession areas – retail, food & beverage, duty free, and rental cars – generated sales in excess of $715 million and netted the Airport almost $91 million in rental fees. The increase in concession sales also allowed SFO to increase its annual service payment to the City & County of San Francisco’s general fund from $28 million to $30.1 million. SFO’s concessions also compare favorably with other airports across the nation. New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport has the highest average sales per enplaned passenger at $12.90. Pittsburgh International is second with $11.90 and SFO ranks third in the nation at $11.65 in sales per enplaned passenger. “San Francisco International is committed to providing our passengers with world class service and facilities,” said Airport Director John L. Martin.”The Airport is constantly working to make sure all of our concessions meet the needs and exceeds the expectations of everyone flies in and out of SFO. Our robust concession sales number, in spite of a very sluggish and uncertain economy, is validation of our commitment.” For additional concession sales information, view the full press release at

Moto Bellissima: Italian Motorcycles from the 1950s and 1960s on View at SFO

L2011.0301.004 The Italian propensity for artistic design, historically demonstrated in a wide range of manufactured goods, has perhaps never been better exemplified than in the beautiful motorcycles that graced Italy’s racetracks and roadways in the 1950s and 1960s. Over the course of two decades, an unprecedented number of Italian firms, many of them lost to history, produced a dizzying array of small-sized motorcycles for a country with a desperate need for mobility after World War II. These machines were created at a time of impoverished resources, but were consistent with a characteristically Italian insistence on producing, and demanding, objects of extraordinary design and beauty. Nineteen motorcycles now on view at SFO, ranging from singularly produced racers such as Carlo Ubbiali’s 1951 Mondial 125cc Bialbero Grand Prix to 50cc production bikes from the late 1960s, demonstrate that while necessity breeds invention, the results can be truly stunning. This exhibit is on display in the International Terminal, pre-security, behind the airline check-in counters, through April 28, 2012.

SFO Employees Reach Out to Communities in Need

San Francisco Airport Commission employees hosted two events that allowed Airport staff to reach out to communities in need. On December 7, 2011, at the Airport’s first-ever Employee Holiday Breakfast, attendees brought unused toiletries for donation to Safe Harbor Shelter, a 90 bed emergency shelter located adjacent to the Airport off of North Access Road. In total, staff collected, sorted and delivered 28 boxes of toiletries to the shelter. In addition, just under $900 in cash donations were used to purchase desperately needed socks and undergarments for Safe Harbor clients. Breakfast attendees also signed SFO holiday cards and decorated a Christmas tree for donation to the shelter. “The display of generosity from staff was remarkable; we received donations both large and small, and each individual item contributed to helping us fill up box after box for the shelter – far exceeding our group’s expectations,” said Susan Kim, Volunteer Event Team Leader.

The Airport also organized a group of 27 Airport Commission volunteers to participate in the City and County of San Francisco’s 42nd Project Homeless Connect event on December 14. Held at San Francisco’ўs Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, the event provided a single location where nonprofit medical and social service providers collaborated to serve the homeless of San Francisco with comprehensive, holistic services. Since its creation in 2004, more than 21,000 people have volunteered with the program, helping to provide services and care to over 29,000 homeless individuals. Various other states are now using San Francisco as a model in providing similar services within their own communities. The SFO staff who volunteered for Project Homeless Connect worked throughout the morning, serving meals and helping to distribute warm sweaters and jackets to the clients.

SFO Golf Tournament Raises $54,000 for Local Charities

Two local charities, the North Peninsula Food Pantry and Dining Center, and La Casa de Las Madres, split more than $54,000 raised at the 12th Annual San Francisco International Airport Charity Golf Tournament held October 3 at the Green Hills Country Club in Millbrae. The North Peninsula Food Pantry & Dining Center provides nutrition and sustenance to those in need within the community by supplying shelf-stable food, as well as hot meals; and La Casa de Las Madres works as an advocate, a refuge, and a strong voice against domestic violence by providing emergency shelter to women and children escaping domestic violence. The San Francisco International Airport Charity Golf Tournament Committee is comprised of representatives of the San Francisco Airport community. Members of the tournament committee include representatives of the San Francisco International Airport, the San Francisco Police Department-Airport Bureau, the San Francisco Fire Department-Airport Division, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), United Airlines, Japan Airlines, Virgin America Airlines, Cathay Pacific Airways, Signature Flight Support, Covenant Aviation Security, AvAirPros, and ING Financial Partners. Honorary Chairpersons for the event were San Francisco Airport Director John L. Martin, San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr, and San Francisco Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White.
