PDX Construction Updates

Hello there. We’re glad you’re here. If you haven’t flown in a while, you’ll notice that PDX looks a little different — that’s because parts of the airport are under construction.

Here is what you need to know:

  • Arrive a little early.

    The airport is busy again. Give yourself extra time to get to your gate. (We recommend 2 hours for domestic flights and 3 hours for international flights, but travelers should also check in with their airlines.)

  • Don’t go through security twice.

    Make sure you follow signs to the security checkpoint matching your boarding pass. There are no shortcuts between concourses beyond security anymore.

  • Masks are still required at PDX.

    Even if you’re vaccinated, masks are still required in airports and on airplanes.

A few more helpful tips

  • Follow the overhead wayfinding signs. There are some new routes at PDX. For example, a new bypass hallway to Concourse D adds 3 to 5 minutes of walk time to safely move you around construction -- and keep you connected to your favorite shops and restaurants. Follow the overhead signs to your gate.
  • Expect to see: a lot of construction workers hard at work. The ceiling is gone in the ticket lobby and we just installed some scaffolding to keep you safe as we work.
  • It may also be loud at times. Earplugs are available. You can find them right before each security checkpoint. You may also feel some vibrations as we start to bring the new main terminal designs to life.
  • Why is this all happening? If you haven’t seen the latest renderings – and what we can all look forward to at the end of 2023 — check out this story.
