A landing of more capacity
At the beginning of 2021, the first works began to build another component of the project: the second runway. For this, the land had to be cleared, which involved the movement of 4 million cubic meters of earth. At the most intense moment of the tasks, more than 1000 machines and vehicles were used.
The second runway is 3,480 meters long and has a network of taxiways over 10 kilometers long. This will double the operational capacity of the airport, allowing two landings per minute.
Currently, the civil works of the new runway have been 100% completed.
