One of the Authority's responsibilities is to serve as the Airport Land Use Commission for San Diego County, which is charged with creating or updating Airport Land Use Compatibility Plans for the region's 16 public-use and military airports in accordance with applicable state and federal law.
The Airport Development Plan (ADP) is the next master-planning phase for San Diego International Airport. The ADP is designed to identify improvements that will enable the airport to meet demand through 2035.
As the largest improvement project in the airport’s history, The Green Build helps meet the airport’s current and future demand for travel, while improving customer service and serving as an economic stimulus for the San Diego region.
To maximize the airport’s efficiency and make the most of the airport’s 661-acre footprint, SDIA is moving forward with a series of improvements on the north side of the Airport.
The Airport Authority is exploring opportunities to meet demand for air service in the San Diego County region. The Regional Aviation Strategic Plan (RASP) identifies and analyzes 15 alternative scenarios that could potentially work together to improve capacity of the regional airport system.
The mission of Airport Noise Mitigation is to reduce the aircraft noise impact on the community through mitigation programs while monitoring compliance with local, state, and federal regulations, thus maintaining an environmentally viable airport.
The Airport Authority is committed to building and operating sustainably, and strives to protect the wide variety of natural resources that exist at San Diego International Airport.
The Quieter Home Program is the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority’s Residential Sound Insulation Program. The FAA has determined that residences within the 65+ decibel level contour map around SDIA may be eligible for sound insulation treatments to mitigate aircraft noise.
San Diego International Airport is one of the most “under parked” airports in the country – that means there aren’t enough close-in short-term parking spots to meet demand. In July, the Airport Authority Board gave staff the “green light” to proceed with design and construction of a long-anticipated parking plaza adjacent to Terminal 2.
