Jimsair, which has been a fixture at San Diego International Airport (SAN) for more than half a century, is currently undergoing a $5 million facility refurbishment. The three-story construction project, accentuated by its sweeping wing-like roofline, is expected to be completed by year-end–in time for January’s Super Bowl. More than 300 visiting corporate jets are expected to crowd Jimsair’s ramp for the big game. Amenities in the all-new building will include a concierge desk, passenger lobby, executive lounge, meeting rooms, pilots’ quiet rooms and flight-planning facilities. A 100-seat restaurant, double the size of the former restaurant on the site, will provide diners with views of the city, the airport and Mission Bay. Architects Hawkins & Hawkins designed the new terminal complex. Its new third level will house Jimsair’s corporate offices.
