I echo all the negative reviews. I can only assume some tree-hugging nut-eater designed this place in order to force people to go on a hike. There will be many cardiac events in this place when people unaccustomed to the altitude fly here and are met with a 1.25 mile hike from their B gate to baggage claim with no place to sit and rest and darn few moving sidewalks. The dim-bulbs that designed this place accommodated only the young and fit. Only thing missing is some red rocks and you wouldn’t need to go to Moab for a hike. This place makes Chicago O’Hare look like accommodating.

Wow! Just flew into the SLC Airport for the first time in several years. New, big, bright and very impressive! Such a huge upgrade and such a great way to welcome visitors. Signs were easy to follow, big, wide aisles and easy connections for passenger pick-up and ground transportation. I'll be taking TRAX back to the airport today and was excited to learn about direct connections and easy access from downtown. If I lived here or had reason to travel here often I would be happy to call it my "home airport." Well done!

I am in my mid 70s and I consider myself a pretty well seasoned traveler. Over the years I have done a fair amount of traveling both domestically and internationally. I agree that the new Salt Lake airport is a total disaster. From the extremely long walks, to the grouchy and unfriendly security personnel, to the poor signage, the narrow moving sidewalks, the inefficient baggage carousels, to the horrible crush at passenger pick-up. If the main function of an airport is to move passengers through efficiently, this one fails on all counts. I could live with the poor choice of shops, food vendors and the ugly design, but passengers have to be able to flow smoothly! Did anyone even consider putting a train system in BEFORE they build the airport? I agree that it is a total waste of 4 billion tax dollars! About the only fix I can see is to level it and start again! I would give it zero stars if I could.
