Works at Tocumen Airport To End Sooner than Expected

The works scheduled to start at the Panamanian airport in 2012 and 2015 will be advanced for the end of 2011.

Friday, April 1, 2011


Airport management, driven by increased passenger volumes and the interest of new airlines to operate at the terminal, have forced construction of the South Pier, which was expected to begin in 2012 and the new building for immigration planned for 2015.

Juan Carlos Pino, manager of Tocumen SA "... said that the model to be used will be the one used for the North Pier, which was a tender, because it would attract companies with proven experience. With the 24 gates to be enabled and the 12 at the North Pier, Tocumen will have 54 aircraft stations in 2015."
