A consortium headed by Ayesa is responsible for the supervision of the design and construction of a new passenger terminal, of the highest level in the world, with unique architecture, projected by Foster&Partners, as well as all of its associated infrastructures (accesses, aircraft parking platform and control tower). These works will require an investment of over 800 million dollars, the greatest airport investment currently being executed in Latin America.
The new terminal building will occupy a surface area of approximately 85,000 m2, and, in its first phase, it shall have 20 new boarding bridges (added to the 34 already existing), accesses, parking areas and interconnections with the terminal and the rest of the infrastructure installations already existent.
The consortium will also be responsible for the supervision of the design and construction of the taxiways and aircraft parking platforms that shall serve the new terminal building, as well as the new control tower.
The Expansion Program for the Tocumen International Airport consists of a design and construction project that is divided into two main stages.
The first stage, to last 24 months, covers the construction of the new airport terminal, including the structure and main enclosure, the access boulevard to the terminal, extensions to the drinking water storage systems and parking space in the existing parking platform.
During the second stage, to last a further 24 months, the construction and installation of the systems of the new airport terminal, the control tower, the interconnection with the terminal already existent, the aircraft parking platform, the improvements to the main taxiway, the fuel storage system, the parking area, and the generator back-up and the new electricity sub-station will be finalized.
