Current and future Airport developments:
Construction on a second runway has been delayed again - as the 740 acres made available by the Government, were turned over with encumbrances - supposedly in non-conformance with the signed agreement.  As of early May 2016 there is no completion scheduled.
- The 960-meter tunnel under Nestor Gambetta Avenue in Callao now under construction and intended to ease traffic congestion around the airport, is to be completed by late 2016/ early 2017.
A second passenger terminal was scheduled for completion by 2016 - to be integrated into the current terminal - whereby capacity will reach 30M passengers a year and have a new parking platform.  Tentative completion could be by 2018.
