Airport renovations should be ready in a month
A 4,200 square-meter expansion in the national concourse of the Jose Maria Córdova Airport in Rionegro will be completed in one month.
The first floor is office space and will house the administrative offices of both the airport and Airplan. On the side facing the runways there were areas built for aircraft maintenance, which are already being used by the country’s new airline, VivaColombia.
The second floor has a boarding gate for 280 passengers, a new jet bridge, and retail shops. The renovations are part of the mandatory expansion and modernization plans for airports, which must be completed over a five-year period; this portion completes year three.
