One of the busiest one runway airport, along with LGW.

San diego could use a new, multi runway airport though.

As far as I remember the City of San Diego came up with plans about a new airport, but the people of SD voted against it. Aparently they love their airport and so do I. Amazing seeing those planes land.

It's not that San Diego residents like their current airport, it's because there are few available spaces for building a new airport in the region that are located far away enough from existing residential areas, and the millitary has been very hesitant to allow joint civilian/millitary use at Miramar and North Island. Actually the US DOT is even considering making the Tijuana Airport "binational" serving both the US and Mexico thru separate terminals because there is no available land close enough.

That is very interesting to say the least. Love seeing planes land.

Green Build Terminal, San Diego International Airport

Terminal 2 at San Diego International Airport was recently expanded under a project known as the Green Build project, formerly known as the Terminal Development Program (source). It replaced and expanded terminal 2, which is now known as the Green Build Terminal.

CAPA: San Diego International Airport: successfully fighting to grow, despite opposition to relocation

Quote:
San Diego International Airport capped off a solid 2014 with roughly 5.9% passenger growth, buoyed in part by long-haul flights to Tokyo and continued expansion by the facility’s largest airline, Southwest Airlines.

It is welcome growth for an airport attempting to attract new international offerings with a finite amount of space and operational constraints stemming from the location of the airport’s single runway.

After failed attempts in the middle of the last decade to relocate the airport to an area that would support potentially substantial economic growth for the community, San Diego finds itself working to maximise the offerings of its existing footprint through a two phase expansion to increase passenger throughput. The constraints place San Diego in an unenviable position as it competes to capture international service, but it is having some wins.

Airlines continue to add service from San Diego during 2015 after 2014 expansion

For the 12M ending Dec-2014, San Diego’s total passenger enplanements and deplanements increased from 17.7 million year-on-year to 18.8 million. International passengers increased by 7.2% to 672,972 and domestic passenger throughput increased 5.9% to 18.1 million.

The airport had posted roughly 2.7% passenger growth year-on-year in 2013 to 17.7 million.


...........
San Diego International Airport capacity by airline (% of seats): 12-Jan-2015 to 18-Jan-2015


San Diego International Airport top international destinations by seats: 12-Jan-2015 to 18-Jan-2015

How do you take a photo like that?

Oh, there's a parking garage there. Kind of scary to have the planes right over your head, right?
