Project Overview

Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) is expanding its terminal to improve on airport efficiency and provide passengers with more amenities and options.

Plans for the RSW Terminal Expansion Project include consolidating the Transportation Security Administration checkpoints into a new 16-lane configuration and providing additional seating, concession spaces and a business lounge. In total, more than 164,000 square feet of space will be remodeled and 117,000 square feet of new walkways and concession space will be added to the airport terminal. 

The $331-million project is being funded with grants from the Florida Department of Transportation, Passenger Facility Charges (PFCs), airport revenue bonds and Lee County Port Authority LCPA construction funds. No ad valorem (property) taxes are used for airport operation or construction. This expansion is the second-largest public works project in Lee County history, only being surpassed by the airport’s Midfield Terminal Complex construction completed in 2005. The project started in October 2021 and construction is planned for three years.
