The San Francisco International Airport launched a $383 million dollar renovation plan for a new domestic terminal Thursday because the airport has introduced 610 new flights in the past 18 months, according to airport officials.

The terminal has been vacant since 2000, but the airport has seen and 8 percent increase in passengers since June of 2007, according to the Airport's Bureau of Community Affairs. It will feature two children's play areas, "living room" style seating and 13 food and beverage spots with local brands.

Design Director for the terminal Terence Young said, "The new Terminal Two at San Francisco International Airport combines sustainable design principals and unique Bay Area design details."

The airport also plans to introduce two more international carriers this fall, Emirates and Kingfisher Airlines, because two of its domestic carriers operate out of the International Terminal.

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Silver certified terminal will most likely be finished in fall of 2010.
