Construction Projects

From apron expansions to new facility construction, big plans are in place for the future of Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport. To keep pace with our impressive growth, multiple construction projects are currently underway in-and-around the airport to ultimately create an improved airport experience for our travelers, partners, and employees.

Click the tabs below to learn more about each of our current projects and stay up-to-date on our progress as we continually strive to provide a world-class travel experience.

Project Overview

As enplanements increase, there is a real need for the expansion of the current TSA Security Checkpoint to expand from four (4) lanes to six (6) lanes with the ability to expand further to eight (8) lanes as capacity demands.


The expansion of the TSA Security Checkpoint will allow for SAV to adequately process passengers through security screening in a timely, stress-free manner. Currently, the four (4) available lanes do not allow for the timely screening of passengers and, at certain times, travelers are backed up through the terminal. With the addition of two more lanes, the processing of passengers will meet the demand and allow for a more efficient security screening experience thus minimizing passenger delays.

The Security Checkpoint Expansion Project is in the Design Phase

Project Overview

The Terminal Concourse Expansion will be a four (4) gate expansion of the Terminal Concourse in the Easterly direction. This expansion will complete the final phase of growth to the East as depicted on the Savannah / Hilton Head International Airport Master Plan and the associated Airport Layout Plan (ALP).


Enplanements have increased steadily over the years, projections show increasing growth rates well into the future. Expansion of the terminal concourse will allow for commercial airline services to increase capacity to meet enplanement demands.

Terminal Apron Expansion – Completed and operational on 01/31/20

Construct an approximate 46,000-square yard aircraft parking apron with associated drainage improvements located on the south edge of the existing terminal apron. This apron expansion is used for overnight aircraft parking which improves the airport’s capacity for aircraft operations and fixed-based aircraft.
