Panama’s new airport includes $400 million in extras

Thursday, August 19, 2010

Construction of two new terminals at Panama’s Tocumen airport is to be accompanied by $400 million of shops, hotels and a hospital.
The administration of Tocumen has described the new project as an “aeropolis” or an “airport city”. The new buildings will be developed in the 300 hectares that the airport bought from the University of Panama in $109 million.
The concept will be developed by the government, while the private sector is to be granted concessions in the building zones along the model applied by the duty-free zones.
