Colombia’s national infrastructure agency (Agency Nacional de Infraestructura, ANI) announced October 26 that expansions and upgrades to Medellin’s Jose Maria Cordova (JMC) international airport will debut in December 2017.

The US$116 million project adds five more aircraft boarding tunnels, another 9,000 square meters of terminal space and additional independent power systems (IPS’s) that bring electric power to planes  parked at gates.

As a result, JMC will have 17 boarding slots with passenger tunnels, plus an additional 16 remote positions. The national-flights terminal area expands to 49,894 square meters (up 5,119 square meters) while the international-flights terminal area rises to 57,932 square meters (up 4,375 square meters).

In addition, five new electric escalators and elevators have been added. Passengers in transit from one flight to another now will be able to move through two new connection modules, both equipped with electric elevators and a fixed metal staircase.

Passengers also now will be able to board two electric elevators and electric escalators connecting terminal areas to the main parking lot adjacent to the terminals.

Last year, JMC served 7.56 million passengers and 81,846 flights.

Besides offering non-stop flights to Bogotá, Cali, Cartagena, San Andrés, Barranquilla, Cúcuta, Santa Marta, Montería, Bucaramanga, Pereira and Leticia, JMC also offers non-stop flights to Lima, Mexico City, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, New York, Panama City, Madrid, San Salvador, Aruba and Valencia (Venezuela).
