Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport (IATA: AZA, ICAO: KIWA, FAA LID: IWA), formerly Williams Gateway Airport (1994–2008) and Williams Air Force Base (1941–1993), is a commercial airport located in the southeastern area of the city of Mesa, Arizona, and 20 miles (32 km) southeast of Phoenix, in Maricopa County, Arizona, United States. The airport is owned and operated by the Williams Gateway Airport Authority. It serves as a focus city for Allegiant Air. The airport authority is governed by a five member board, composed of the mayors and tribal governor of the town of Gilbert, city of Mesa, town of Queen Creek, Gila River Indian Community and the city of Phoenix.

According to the FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2007–2011, Phoenix-Mesa Gateway was designated as a reliever airport, which is a general aviation airport that may be used to relieve congestion at a large commercial service airport. Allegiant Air began offering scheduled commercial service from this airport in October 2007. As per Federal Aviation Administration records, the airport had 289,770 passenger boardings (or enplanements) in the calendar year 2009, a 52.29% increase over the previous year. By 2011, nearly 1 million passengers went through AZA.

Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport Outlines Plans For $1.4B Terminal Expansion

June 20, 2012



To accommodate passenger service over the next 20 years and beyond, Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport outlined four distinct phases of new terminal development at an estimated total cost of $1.4B during a session of the Airport Authority’s Board of Directors meeting.

Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport is among the fastest growing hub airports in the U.S., accommodating 956,665 total passengers in 2011 and forecasting 1.3M in 2012. To accommodate the rapid rise in passenger service, the Airport’s current terminal facility has transitioned through four expansion projects in as many years.


Current passenger trends indicate the existing terminal facilities and infrastructure on the Airport’s west side will be at full capacity as early as 2014. In response, the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport Northeast Area Development Plan was initiated. The plan, titled “Gateway 2030” by the Airport Executive Director at a recent Board of Director’s meeting, was prepared by the Jacobs Engineering Group in collaboration with Airport staff; Federal, State and local officials; development industry experts; and major land owners near the Airport over a 20-month period that began in October 2009.

Phase One

Gateway 2030 will be executed in four phases as demand warrants expansion. The first phase will include a single-level terminal and concourse with 14 aircraft gates, surface parking for 4,375 vehicles, airfield improvements, partial construction of a circulation roadway, and related infrastructure improvements. Phase One will be designed to accommodate up to 3M total passengers a year. The timing for completion of Phase One is demand-based but expected to be operational as early as 2017. The estimated cost for this phase is $344M.

Phase Two

Phase Two expands Phase One development, making the terminal facility capable of accommodating up to 4.4M passengers annually. Detailed expansion includes: four additional gates, extension of the circulation roadway, expanded surface parking to 10,500 vehicles, and a 1,000-feet extension of Runway 12L/30R. The estimated cost of this phase is $145M.

Phase Three

Phase Three increases the terminal capacity to 10M passengers annually and expands the terminal facilities to two levels and 30 total aircraft gates. Parking facilities include multilevel garages and planning for light rail service. Completion timing has not been determined. The estimated cost of this phase is $963M.

Phase Four

Phase Four completes the Plan and all related project efforts, enabling the airport to accommodate up to 20M passengers annually. Phase Four enhancements are expected to include a total of 60 aircraft gates, 21,000 vehicle parking spaces, and dual landside terminal arrival and departure curbs on two levels. Since Phase Four activities likely will not be undertaken until 2030 or beyond, no cost estimates have been forecast.

“Airport staff recognizes that we are stewards of an incredible community asset and we’re working hard to make it the best it can be,” said Airport Authority Executive Director, Lynn Kusy. “The Gateway 2030 project represents a significant step in achieving the Airport’s potential as it outlines the critical steps needed to meet forecast passenger demand.”

Potential funding sources for Gateway 2030 include the Federal Aviation Administration, Arizona Department of Transportation, Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport Authority member government contributions, and Airport resources such as passenger facility charges and bonds.

The Plan also forecasts $385M in private development which is expected to be spent on 2.5 MSF of office/retail space and two hotels producing 600 rooms.
