San Jose airport considers closing 6 gates
MINETA SAN JOSE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (KGO) -- A drop in the number of flights at Mineta San Jose International Airport means that six gates will close and probably two businesses as well.
Our media partner, the Mercury News, reports the San Jose City Council is set to vote on Tuesday to amend a contract to close Chiaramonte's Deli and a nearby newsstand called Sunset News. Airport officials hope the closure will be temporary.
"Our number one objective at the airport right now is to get more flights and to get more airlines, so once we are successful at that and we have the need to open one or six of those gates, we can do so at a moment's notice," said Vicki Day from Mineta San Jose International Airport.
The closed gates are in Terminal A-Plus and are located furthest from the security checkpoint. The closures will not impact flight traffic.
