Boarding Area A Closure Update - June 12, 2020

As a result of the continued reduced flight and passenger activity related to the COVID-19 crisis, Boarding Area A has been closed since April 1, 2020. The original closure was planned through June 1, 2020 and subsequently extended to June 28, 2020. Based on a careful review of current scheduled operations for July 2020, even with the continued return of passenger flights and ad-hoc cargo operations, we are still able to accommodate all International Operations on Boarding Area G (Gates G1 – G14). At this time, the closure of Boarding Area A gates (Gates A1 – A15) to passenger flights will be extended through July 12, 2020. However, we will be operationalizing part of the Boarding Area A checked baggage screening system as work commences on the Boarding Area G baggage screening equipment. We will continue to monitor flight activity weekly and will be able to open select Boarding Area A gates within a 2-week notice if operations require.

Although Boarding Area A will remain closed, the following adjacent facilities will remain open:

  • SFO Medical Clinic
  • Grand Hyatt at SFO
  • International Parking Garage A
  • Wendy’s
