Final Thoughts

As with many U.S. airports, passenger demand is growing, and PHX is investing hundreds of millions of dollars in renovating and modernizing its terminals.

Over the last few years, Terminal 3 has benefited from increased ticketing and baggage services, expanded curbside access, and a consolidated security checkpoint. In 2022, Terminal 4 expanded to include a new eighth concourse that is occupied by Southwest Airlines.

These developments, in addition to the recently extended PHX Sky Train route to the Rental Car Center, should ease congestion around the airport and increase passenger capacity.
