Present and future Airport Developments:
The Airport is currently building a 7-level CONRAC building (Consolidated Rental Car & Parking) - steps away from terminals - which will also include two levels for short-term parking. CONRAC will be linked by pedestrian sky bridge to the passenger terminal. It will replace the current hourly garage which is to be demolished. Opening is scheduled for March 2018, but parking levels should open earlier.
