PHL Philadelphia International Airport

The Capital Development Program (CDP) at PHL Airport is bringing innovation to our airfields and terminals, and strengthening our regional economic impact. Through the initiative, PHL Airport is continuing a commitment of over $2.3 billion in approved funding to make critical improvements and develop new infrastructure at both PHL Airport and Philadelphia Northeast Airport (PNE). These airfield and terminal projects, which began in 2012, are improving the customer experience, laying the groundwork for future development and capitalizing on the role that the Airport plays as a regional economic engine.

As of Summer 2018, the PHL Airport CDP has $540 million in projects underway. From 2014 through 2018, PHL has completed 45 projects totaling over $500 million. Of these, 15 projects delivered innovations and improvements to the terminals and 14 projects to the airfield. The terminal projects totaled over $260 million and airfield over $170 million.

Equally important in the effort to improve customer experience were the 12 projects completed to improve operations and maintenance, and 4 security related projects. In addition, major improvements to concessions have been made to the Airport to enhance the customer experience and comfort, such as the On The Go experience in Terminal B. Airfield projects included repaving the two major runways and completing taxiway improvements, which will enable airplanes to more easily queue for departure. The terminal that serves regional air routes was significantly improved with a $150 million expansion project and escalator replacement and upgrades were made across the airport. To improve service in the winter a new de-icing facility was built.
