FORT MYERS, Fla. (April 21, 2020) – The Lee County Port Authority will be temporarily closing Concourse C at Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) on Thursday, April 23, 2020, in an effort to consolidate airport resources. This closure will impact Delta Air Lines and United Airlines passengers traveling in and out of RSW. Delta passengers will go to Concourse D and United passengers will go to Concourse B for security screening and flights.
“In response to a decline in passenger traffic due to the COVID-19 pandemic, LCPA has evaluated airport infrastructure and operations for ways to maximize efficiencies and implement cost-saving measures,” said Ben Siegel, CPA, C.M., acting executive director of the Lee County Port Authority. “By consolidating operational areas and temporarily closing Concourse C, this will help us better manage TSA staffing and checkpoint operations, as well as prioritize and increase the frequency of cleaning and supplies for the concourses in use.”
Ticketing and check-in for Delta and United passengers remains the same and flight arrivals scheduled to come into Concourse C will be moved to B or D.
Southwest Florida International Airport served more than 10.2 million passengers in 2019 and is one of the top 50 U.S. airports for passenger traffic.
