Document Description
The project sponsor, San Francisco International Airport (SFO or Airport), is proposing to implement the SFO Recommended Airport Development Plan (RADP), which involves a long-range plan to guide the Airport's development. The purpose of the RADP is to plan for forecast passenger and operations growth at SFO through: maximizing gate capacity, geometry, and flexibility; optimizing lobby and security flows and incorporating new technology for passenger screening; maximizing shared-use facilities and baggage handling system flexibility; and maximizing transfer connectivity for passengers and baggage. The proposed RADP includes recommended projects that would accommodate long-term demand at the Airport, forecast to reach 71.1 million annual passengers at the estimated maximum airfield capacity in its existing layout. The RADP serves as a roadmap for guiding future Airport development in order to modernize SFO, increase the efficiency of Airport operations, and enhance the passenger experience. The RADP is not expected to induce passenger demand, and no airfield expansion or changes are proposed as part of the RADP. The RADP projects were developed in order to ensure efficient and unimpeded service for the forecast demand and to balance the terminal and landside facilities with the existing airfield capacity. The EIR will also evaluate a project variant, referred to as the "Boarding Area F Variant," which would include an extension of Boarding Area F and the realignment of two taxiways to maintain access between the boarding areas and runways.
