Yes, the first phase, obviously. It's clear from the article they were not referring to the unstarted second phase, because they said they were too far along to stop now (with the first phase) and they also said they might have to delay the second phase.

Maybe its mostly for transporting carry on luggage that gets checked at the gate and then put in the cargo hold of the aircraft is my guess (and maybe that answers the question)?
You are correct. It is for the carry on luggage that is gate checked.

Quick question. I know that phase 1 of the airport will be opening in September, but I'm wondering about all the restaurants and retail stores that are supposed to be going in. Do those companies pay for the construction of the shops in the airport? And by "construction" I mean the cosmetics. I know that the guts of it have already been built and installed. If they DO pay for it, do you think any of them will back out because of this pandemic?

I don't know how any of this works, and I'm just curious.

Yes, they pay to build out their own shops. I doubt any drop out as I’d imagine they already had finalized loans to cover constructions costs and it seems like a great location with a captive customer base.

I have some inside knowledge of how the airport concessions work because my bar was approached to be part of the new airport bid. Basically, there are large companies that op food and beverage in airports. Those companies find and sign local talent and build a proposal based on a portfolio of different brands that they've made agreements with. Those agreements look different from case to case but mostly they look like you get a small percent of profit for leasing your brand to the company that runs the airport operations. So it's not like the folks at White Horse are running a second location at the airport. They simply lend their brand and concept to a company who runs all the food and beverage for the entire airport.

SLC is planning to change their expansion plans: Thanks to COVID, they're going to tear down the old concourses all at once, instead of a phased approach, allowing them to complete the expansion 2 years early and save approx $300 million.
