SAN DIEGO — Commuter flights at Lindbergh Field are scheduled to begin using gates at the airport’s two main terminals Thursday.

Airport officials say they’re making the switch partly because airlines are using larger aircraft on such flights, most of which go to Los Angeles.

United Express will use Terminal 2 West, while American Eagle will use gates at Terminal 2 East. Seaport Airlines will relocate to Terminal 1.

The San Diego County Regional Airport Authority will keep its administrative offices in the Commuter Terminal for the time being.

The future of the building, the side of which used to be adorned with a huge mural of aviation pioneer Charles Lindbergh, will be determined in a long-range airport planning process now underway.
