HOUSTON – United Airlines has broken ground on the $2.6 billion redevelopment of Terminal B at George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH).
The redevelopment will modernize and triple the capacity of the current facility, which was built in 1969.
Once completed, Terminal B will span 765,000 sf across three levels and have 22 mainline, narrow-body gates.
It will also expand curbside and roadway capacity, expand the ticketing lobby, and add two new passenger concourses.
Two major concession hubs with 115,000 sf of food and retail space, an expanded baggage claim hall, and a new baggage-handling system will also be added.
The proposed Terminal B expansion will also include a new United Club location.
The project is expected to be completed in the summer of 2026.
