Project Details


Works at Colombian capital Bogotá's El Dorado international airport entail the expansion and modernization of the terminal and runway, a new control tower, cargo infrastructure, and administrative buildings. The terminal expansion brought the airport's total size to 174,000m3 from 52,000m3, with cargo capacity raised to 1.2Mt/y from 500,000t/y. Runway expansions will boost landings or departures to 90 an hour versus 52 during peak hours the airport currently sees.
