Málaga airport improvements announced
ThinkSpain , Tuesday, July 27, 2004

The minister for Development, Magdalena Álvarez (photo, right talking to AENA president Manuel Azuaga), announced yesterday the the new terminal planed for Málaga´s Pablo Ruiz Picasso airport would double annual passenger-handling capacity to 20 million and will cost €261 million.

The project will be completed over a 40 month period and is part of the first phase of the €730 million "Málaga Plan," which aims to resolve the problem of saturation at the airport by 2010; some five years earlier than predicted by the previous PP administration. Ms Álvarez explained that the aim of the scheme is to "make Málaga airport one of the best touristic airports in the Mediterranean, and to promote the social and economic development of the Costa del Sol."

Ramón Bustos, who is the director of the Málaga Plan, explained that work of the new 251,000m2 terminal building, which will be able to process up to a maximum of 9,000 passengers an hour with the addition of 86 new walkways and 20 new boarding gates, would start immediately and is expected to be completed by 2008.

To handle increased passenger traffic between now and the opening of the new terminal, more check in desks and boarding gates will be opened in Terminal 1.

The second phase of the plan involves the building of a second runway, a project which is still in the early stages of planning, and which has been assigned a total budget of €96 million. Work on the new runway is expected to start in 2007 and be completed by 2009.
