The concession covers the operation and development of the airport, and the consortium will be responsible for renovationing the current terminal and building a new 175,000m² terminal that will bring the airport’s capacity to 30 million passengers, and will be extendable up to 45 million.

Construction work on the new terminal by VINCI Construction Grands Projets and Astaldi is set to begin in summer 2016.
