Tocumen Increases Capacity

On April 29, Terminal 2 of Panama City's international airport began operating, which will now have the capacity to mobilize up to 25 million passengers per year.

Monday, April 29, 2019

According to air terminal authorities, with the expansion, which demanded a $800 million investment, the airport will double its capacity to transport passengers from 12 million to 25 million per year.

Oscar Ramirez, manager of Tocumen, explained to that "... The inauguration of the new terminal, a 116,000-square-meter building designed by prestigious British architect Norman Foster, will take place as 'progress is made, calibrating all systems,' in a process that "is going to take up to the middle of the year."

Ramírez added that "... the immediate benefit of putting the new terminal into operation is the 'redistribution of capacity' of the airport, "which has been committed to the existing terminal," which was made to serve 12 million passengers annually but is receiving about 16 million."

Terminal 2, which is a 116,000 square meter building, will have the capacity to handle aircraft in 20 contact gates and 8 remote positions.
