Tocumen S.A. has released a new image of how the Tocumen International Airport will look in 2016. The design of the Southern Concourse, to be built by the Brazilian construction giant Norberto Odebrecht, resembles that of a stealth jet, part of the United States’ “invisible” super-fighter fleet.
As the regional air hub grows, it is taking a first-world turn. Some $60 million were spent on the new Northern Concourse, which brought 12 more gates to Tocumen. In comparison, the Southern Concourse will cost $674 million, but will integrate a new highway from the Southern Corridor (Corredor Sur) to the airport, a new control tower and 8,000 square meters of duty free shopping.
When it is finished, Tocumen will boast 54 gates and be able to handle 18 million passengers, according to a statement.
