Sky Harbor Terminal 3 construction will restrict lanes

The modernization of Sky Harbor International Airport’s Terminal 3 continues, with construction work shifting from the north to the south side of Terminal 3 later this week. During the overnight hours of June 4, the north inner curb lanes at Terminal 3, which have been closed to traffic for the past month, will re-open and the south inner curb lanes at Terminal 3 will close. The closure, which will be in effect for at least a month, will impact drivers entering from the east and heading westbound on Sky Harbor Boulevard.

During this time, drivers are encouraged to follow these tips:

·        The westbound outer lanes on the south side of Terminal 3 will be available for picking up and dropping off passengers. The eastbound inner lanes on the north side of the terminal will also be available for pick-ups and drop-offs.

·        All Ground Transportation services will be moved to the north outer curb except for the Rental Car Center Shuttle pick-up, which will remain on the south outer curb.

·        If you plan to pick up a passenger at Terminal 3, use one of the Cell Phone Lots to avoid circling the terminal.

·        Use the PHX Sky Train® Station at 44th and Washington Street for pick-up and drop-off.  The PHX Sky Train® offers a quick ride for free between the 44th Street Station and Terminal 3. Drivers can wait for their party in the free cellphone lot adjacent to the station.

·        Give yourself a little extra time, reduce your speed, watch for detour signs and use caution when driving.

Terminal 3 serves Delta, Frontier, Hawaiian and JetBlue. The modernization of Terminal 3 will result in a more convenient, efficient experience for passengers including a new consolidated security checkpoint, ticket counter improvements, new shops, restaurants and more.

Frequent Flier Miles Can Help Grant Nearly 100 Wishes This Summer

The lazy days of summer may have begun for some of us, but Make-A-Wish Arizona is gearing up for one of the busiest wish granting summers on record…and your frequent flier miles can help!

Nearly 100 Arizona children battling life-threatening medical conditions will have their one true wish granted before the new school year begins, and the majority of these wishes require air travel. Some of those trips include a wish to meet the Pope, a wish to meet President Barack Obama, and a wish to see the turtles in the Galapagos Islands.

Donating frequent flier miles through the foundation’s Wishes in Flight program is easy – and the miles never expire once they’ve been donated.

“We are asking travelers to donate airline miles which we will use to help grant wishes of children who need to travel to reach their wish destinations,” said Elizabeth Reich, President and CEO of Make-A-Wish Arizona. “When you donate airline miles you free up other resources that can be used to grant wishes. An added benefit is that most airlines also waive baggage fees when miles are donated. Baggage fees add significant costs to wishes. ”

Many major airlines based in the United States allow members of their frequent flier programs to donate airline miles to Make-A-Wish Arizona If you have frequent flier miles with Delta, US Airways, Continental, or United, you hold the ticket to a child’s wishSM.

Every traveler can be part of a life-affirming wish. All it takes is a simple airline miles donation.
