The groundbreaking ceremony was attended by Houston Mayor Annise Parker, as well as local and state dignitaries, and Southwest Airlines company officials.

In addition to five new passenger gates, the new building will include security checkpoints and ticketing areas.  The Houston Airport System plans to build a new multilevel parking garage and improve roadways near the airport.

Construction imediately commenced after the brief ceremony, and the terminal is scheduled to be ready for use in 2015.  Once the new facility opens, SouthWest Airlines will begin international flights to the Caribbean, Mexico, and a variety of destinations in South America.
