Tours for the new terminal are being held on October 15th. Space is limited so please sign up at

SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA — The San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport is offering a sneak peek of its new terminal before it opens. The airport will open its doors on Sunday, October 15, to provide a series of free tours to the public. This is the local’s chance to take time exploring the new art pieces, large gate areas, and one-of-a-kind outdoor courtyard—without the stress of flying.

The terminal has been under construction since 2015. At 56,000 square feet, it is almost 45,000 square feet larger than its existing terminal. High ceilings, natural materials and a new outdoor courtyard convey a strong feeling of the regional landscape in the terminal space. The size of the new facility also provides travelers with a variety of new amenities, from a larger checkpoint area to a food and beverage concession post-security.

There are five 40-minute tour times available between 11:00am and 3:00pm. Guides will be on hand to share details and answer questions. Space is limited, so sign up today.

After October 15, the terminal will close again as it completes the final steps of the construction process, and open for operations in November. The first planes will arrive in the new terminal November 1 and the first outbound flights will begin the morning of November 2.
