San Diego County Regional Airport Authority, which operates San Diego International Airport, will hold a gathering aimed at helping small businesses win contract work on current airport construction projects.

It is planned for 1 to 4:30 p.m. on Dec. 5, at Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation, 404 Euclid Ave. in San Diego.

Airport authority representatives will discuss opportunities related to more than $470 million in contracts being awarded for improvements now underway on the north side of the airport.

Construction was recently started on a new consolidated rental car center, a fixed-based operations facility for private aircraft, and related roadway and infrastructure improvements.
