INFRAERO, public company in charge of the administration of Brazil’s main airports, has publicised an electronic mock up of the refurbishment works being done at Manaus International Airport, in the state of Amazonas. The works are aimed at refurbishing, increasing and modernising the passenger terminals, as well as adapting the roadway system.
Budgeted at R$ 344.02 million, the refurbishment works, which started in November 2011, will increase the boarding, arrivals and check-in areas, among others, expanding the passenger terminal from its current 43 thousand square metres to 97 thousand square metres.
The airport’s capacity will be increased from 6.4 million to 13.5 million passengers per year. The construction works are scheduled to be concluded by December 2013. The construction works are part of the Growth Acceleration Programme (PAC), federal government programme that combines a set of economic policies and interventions aimed at developing the country.
