Provo is now Utah’s second busiest airport. By investing in vital infrastructure, we created economic opportunity for Provo rather than waiting for it. The community economic benefits are substantial, with each new roundtrip daily destination bringing an estimated $15 million into our local, regional, and state economy.
The forward-looking terminal design not only provides more gates and destinations; it is designed to enhance the travel experience from curb to flight. Quick gate access and short lines reduce travel hassle; additions of baggage carousels, jetway and rental cars increase travel convenience.
Features of the new airport terminal include:
A Family Lounge offers an enclosed area for children to play as they wait;
Travelers Commons seats 630 comfortably with designated areas for family and business areas,
Downtown Provo serves as the inspiration for Streetscape Provo, with red-bricked storefronts showcasing local retail shops and restaurants;
Outlook Lounge is a large public gathering space designed to watch aircraft land or take flight, meet with colleagues or simply enjoy Provo’s beauty.
Reunion Court offers a spacious waiting area with floor-to-ceiling glass for a clear view of arriving passengers
The Provo Airport terminal expansion has generated industry buzz since its November 2019 groundbreaking, with Allegiant announcing new destinations, now at eight total, in anticipation of its opening in June. With the opening of the Provo Airport terminal, Allegiant Travel Company announced its investment of a $95 million four-aircraft base of operations generating at least 157 new, high wage jobs.
New destinations offered by Allegiant Airlines combined with the terminal amenities of the Provo Airport create a new travel experience for all in Utah County. The Provo Airport is establishing a niche for vacationers who appreciate affordable, convenient travel without the hassle of layovers and connections. Allegiant Airlines will participate in the upcoming grand opening of the Provo Airport terminal.
The new Provo Airport terminal will bring many to Provo’s west side for the first time—or for the first time in a long time. What they may be surprised to find is a community on the rise. Where once West Provo, with its limited access, felt like an out-of-the-way adventure, the completion of the four-lane Lakeview Parkway will bring opportunities for nearly 1,000 acres of undeveloped land. With Provo City approximately 80 percent developed, creating a West Provo that is a destination for resident and visitor alike becomes all the more important.
Provo is a dynamic and rapidly growing city in the Mountain West. The Milken Institute named Provo "America’s best performing city" in economic ranking for 2021. It has a young active population, strong talent pipeline, and a dynamic entrepreneurial scene. Provo is home to hugely successful companies like Vivint, NuSkin, and Qualtrics, as well as Brigham Young University and Utah Valley University which both boast impressive entrepreneurial centers and mentorship programs.
