To make room for three local restaurants, barricades will be installed at Sacramento International Airport Terminal A food court on the second level within a week’s time. Simultaneously, the post-security interior is getting its biggest remodel since the terminal opened in 1998. The end result will be a modern, open dining and lounging area where passengers can relax and enjoy specialty restaurants found only in Sacramento. The construction will not impact retail shops or other restaurants, with the exception of the Jet Box Market.
Local favorites Paesanos and the Squeeze Inn will open in the summer. The Iron Horse Tavern will open in the fall, although the bar will be available in late summer.
“We’re thrilled to be able to offer our passengers the same type of experience in Terminal A that they enjoy in Terminal B, complete with one-of-a-kind restaurants that give passengers a sense of place,” said John Wheat, Director of Airports for the Sacramento County Dept. of Airports.
Also, Freshii, offering lighter fare, and a casual-dining bar and restaurant will open in the fall. An expansion of the HMS Host Starbucks on the first floor of Terminal A is expected to be completed at the same time, as will an expansion/remodel of the Peet’s Coffee and Tea on the second level.
Terminal A is the departure point for American Airlines, Delta, JetBlue, United Airlines and US Airways. About 35 percent of passengers at Sacramento International Airport fly out of Terminal A.
