The airport is a single terminal with twelve gates. Currently, the airport is handling more passengers than it was designed to handle. This often leads to crowded periods and areas within the terminal. In particular, the three gates where Southwest Airlines operates, are prone to over-crowding. There is a 15 year plan in place to expand the terminal. The plan was announced back in 2008 and when the expansion is complete there will be 17 gates.

      @Lisa, thanks for the comments. Yes a good way to save on airline tickets is to check out the smaller airline's websites directly. Many times they are not included in the travel search aggregators like Expedia and Travelocity.

      very thorough hub. I am impressed. I voted up and useful. I live in Texarkana so I will refer back to this. I have never even heard of many of these airlines and I have flown out of Little Rock numerous times.

      Take care,

      Hi Steven,

      I would recommend checking out Southwest's website for their airfare between SLC and LIT. Then use an aggregator like LowFares to search all the travel search engines for their pricing. Travelocity and the others don't pick up Southwest airfares, so you need to compare to their website to make sure you're getting the cheapest flight.
