Sacyr Engineering and Infrastructure will build the building joining T1 and T2 of the Tenerife Sur airport for 44.16 million euros.
The project, awarded by Aena, will increase the useful space of the airport by 14,000 m2 and will include a complete transformation of the airport facility by integrating both buildings into a single terminal area.
In addition to being responsible for the distribution of the outer urbanization of the terminal area to adapt to the new configuration, the works also include the construction of a modern security control, which is centralized and based on a single level, with two large side billing areas in terminals T1 and T2. As a result, the current T1 will readjust the passenger flow and expand the commercial area.
The building will also be equipped with two new entrance ramps to accommodate four new boarding gates.
The works, which will begin in April, will have a duration of around 23 months and will be carried out in phases so that the impact on the operation of the airport is minimal.
Sacyr has extensive experience in the implementation of airport projects in Spain, Portugal and Angola with over 1,600 million euros of works carried out, including the T4 at the Adolfo Suárez Madrid Barajas Airport, Murcia, Ciudad Real. It is currently carrying out the improvement works for the El Tepual (Puerto Montt, Chile) and Chiclayo (Peru) airports.
