Terminal expansion project begins at El Dorado International

Construction work has started on the terminal expansion project at El Dorado International Airport in Columbia. The project will grow the terminal from approximately 1,860,000ft² to 2,570,000ft², an increase of 38%, and will provide multiple new aircraft parking positions.

Opain, an anonymous consortium of local companies responsible for operating, upgrading and expanding the airport, will implement the project in four phases. The expansion will cost approximately US$230,000 and will take two years to complete.

The first phase of the project involves the demolition of the old control tower and construction of an apron with six parking positions. The second stage involves the construction of approximately 710,000ft² of terminal space and further aircraft parking spaces.

Andres Ortega, CEO for Opain, said, “The start of these works is confirmation of the momentum of the country’s aviation industry and the excellent results that the consortium has had both in the construction and in the operation of this terminal. Likewise, it demonstrates Opain’s commitment to improving and optimizing El Dorado Airport, which now has as its mission to become the best airport in Latin America for excellence in customer service.”
