TULSA, Oklahoma – January 9, 2014 - Passengers traveling through Tulsa International Airport will notice changes to airline operations beginning this morning with the move of Delta Airlines from Concourse A to gates B7, B9, and B11. American will stay on Concourse A, however they will relocate one gate from 27 to 22. The shift of airlines will also impact concession operations on the concourse. CNBC, Java Dave’s, and Explore Tulsa will close throughout the construction. Camille’s will relocate to a temporary location and offer grab and go items. The moves are necessary in order to begin the renovation of the 40 year old concourse.
The twenty three million dollar project will mirror the recent renovation of Concourse B and result in the replacement of all mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems that support the concourse, improving the operational efficiency of the facility and the comfort of airport guests. Additional changes passengers should expect are expanded gate areas, new seating with integrated power outlets, new restrooms – including a family restroom, a business center, and a new military lounge. The project is funded by passenger facility charges, a $4.50 per ticket fee that is added to every departing ticket sold from TUL. It will take approximately 18 months to complete and will ultimately house the operations for Delta, American, and Allegiant.
