The Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport Authority and D.L. Withers Construction agreed on a contract Monday to build two more gates and an additional outdoor courtyard at the airport’s Charles L. Williams Passenger Terminal at a cost of $4.8 million.

With the project, the total number of gates will increase from eight to ten and the courtyard, located beyond the security checkpoint, will provide an outdoor respite for travelers prior to boarding.

The announcement comes on the heels of a preliminary report by Airport Council International listing Gateway Airport as the fastest growing commercial airport in America for total passengers served, based on percentage increase.

The airline passenger count for 2012 totaled 1.39 million — a 45 percent bounce from the 956,665 passenger total for the previous year. The Airport was established in 1994 and is owned and operated by the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport Authority, which consists of the Gila River Indian Community, Gilbert, Mesa, Phoenix, and Queen Creek.
