New Buenos Aires Airport Terminal Doubles Capacity

By Narayan Ammachchi

Argentina has added a modern terminal to its Ezeiza International Airport in Buenos Aires. President Cristina Fernandez recently inaugurated the terminal built at a cost of US$111 million.

The new terminal doubles the Airport’s capacity to  handle passengers. “It has the capacity to process 4,000 passengers at peak hours and thus meets the immediate and future growth,” stated Airports Argentina 2000, the company that has built the terminal.

The new terminal is considered long overdue, given that passenger traffic reached 24 million in 2012, stated the President. “Our tourism industry is growing. More people are coming from Brazil, Chile and the rest of Americas,” Fernandez said.
