Spanish airport authority Aena has unveiled €100 million worth of expansion plans at A Coruña Airport including the construction of a new €60 million terminal.
In addition to a newly opened parking garage, Aena has revealed a raft of projects to expand A Coruña Airport, including plans to develop the airfield, and to build a new terminal.
The airport authority has announced the tender for the new terminal, which will increase capacity at the gateway by 50% to 2mppa.
At 18,300sqm, the new terminal will have 19 check-in counters, 10 boarding gates and will be able to handle 1,060 passengers per hour.
Aena said that the terminal project will be completed in two phases to allow continued operation of the facility.
Meanwhile, work also started today (23 June) on the expansion of the runway at A Coruña.
It will be extended by 400 feet to a length of 2,340m, to allow for larger aircraft and increase the number of routes serving long-haul destinations.
Aena is investing more than €100 million on these projects, which involves
moving 4.5 million cubic meters of earth and paving 30,000sqm of airport ground.
Several retaining walls will also be built to stabilise the embankment and airport service roads around the area.
