Liberia airport adding new terminal

April 13, 2011

Following months of delays, a new terminal at the Daniel Oduber (Liberia) Airport will be ready to receive passengers in November.

Coriport, the company in charge of the construction project, will face a fine of approximately $540.000 due to the delay, according to the daily La Nación. The deadline to finish the new terminal was April 19.

Mario Lara, the project manager, told La Nacion that the delays are related to the late arrival of equipment to the country, including elevators and escalators.

According to Analibe Rosales, terminal administrator, the new building will have a capacity of 1,500 passengers after the terminal is completed. Previously, the airport could hold 900 passengers.

Currently, passengers filling out immigration paperwork and preparing to board the plane have had to wait in long lines under the sun in the airport’s cramped waiting area. Rosales told La Nación that in the past passengers forced to wait outside have fainted due to heat stroke. 

The new terminal will include two boarding areas and a food court. Coffee, chocolate and handicrafts stands will be available nearby for passengers looking to do some last minute shopping. Airport visits also will be able to hang out in a new sports bar.

The new structure will cost approximately $27 million.
