Present & future Airport Developments:
The passenger terminal is presently under redevelopment. Upon completion by 2015, it is to have a capacity of handling up to 5,500 passenger/hr through a new high-tech zone. The current phase involves Satellite One's upgrade of departure gate area & construction of a new passenger lounge with comfortable seating, refurbished restrooms, free charging points & improved WiFi access, with allocated space for more lounge facilities - starting with the new Escape Lounge in the new main departures area.
Under long-term contract, Vanderlande will design, build & implement a new baggage handling control system - to be operational by late 2015.
