Long Beach Airport's new passenger concourse is modern,comfortable and inviting. Offering a variety of new shopping destinations, the concourse is comprised of 74,000 square feet of new construction with a peaceful garden core with a variety of vibrant, native plant life. This project brings the overall terminal area to 77,850 square feet, while accentuating the historic terminal building. Groundbreaking took place in December 2010, and the concourse opened to the public on December 12, 2012. The project supported 340 jobs and provides modern waiting areas and concessions that will exceed customer expectations. The estimated  budget is $45 million funded through Passenger Facility Charges (PFC) and General Airport Revenue Bond (GARB) funds.
