The Lee County Port Authority will be temporarily closing Concourse C at Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) on Thursday, April 23, in an effort to consolidate airport resources.

This will impact anyone flying with Delta Airlines or United Airlines. Delta passengers will go to Concourse D and United passengers will go to Concourse B for security screening and flights.

Ticketing and check-in for Delta and United passengers will remain the same and flight arrivals scheduled to come into Concourse C will be moved to B or D.

“In response to a decline in passenger traffic due to the COVID-19 pandemic, LCPA has evaluated airport infrastructure and operations for ways to maximize efficiencies and implement cost-saving measures,” said Ben Siegel, CPA, C.M., acting executive director of the Lee County Port Authority. “By consolidating operational areas and temporarily closing Concourse C, this will help us better manage TSA staffing and checkpoint operations, as well as prioritize and increase the frequency of cleaning and supplies for the concourses in use.”
