Here are some photos of the Phase 1, corresponding to the highlited part on the render. This part will be finished in July 2012. After this, the current terminal will be leveled to clear ground for the rest of the structure. This Phase 1 corresponds approx to 50% of the total structure, or 89,000 sq meters:

Yeah, it was ablout time we had a more suitable airport for the 3rd busiest in Latin America, handling 20 million, with a capacity of 8 million

Some comparative data between new and old:

Elevetaros: 39 versus 1 current.
Escalators: 20 versus 4 current.
Moving walks: 16 versus 0 current
Boarding Bridges: 33 versus 13 current

UPDATE


January 28th 2012




































[/COLOR][/SIZE][/CENTER][/B]

--> The viaduct has already reached the first door of the new terminal and shortly it will reach the second one. They are also advancing on the construction of the structure from its other end.

The building still lacks some windows but it won't be long until it's fully completed. On the side of the old terminal, new construction has already reached the door 2 (this part will be delivered in 2014).

Let's not forget first phase of this building will begin operations in mid-july this year. The rest will be completed by 2014.

All photos are my property. Hope you like them

Great pictures from users TopWatch, I(L)Bogota and a video from user av-col.

Another post with pics by user classic_warplanes. I have translated his statements on some of his other pics and new info he has on the project.

- Inside the building there will be enough natural light, perhaps the picture does not do justice, but even in a rainy day it looked very clear.

- There will be 9 boarding gates which will be set for international flights even after the whole building is finished (in 2014). The ones that will be built in the rest of the building (towards the west) will be for international AND national flights.

- The future positions for regional flights will be in front of today's international pier.

- In stage two of the construction, the internatinal pier will become national and the national pier will work for some Avianca flights as it will be partly demolished to extend the new terminal.

Actually is a new terminal that replaces an old one that was built in the 50's. The terminal will use the same runways and taxiways that already exist but almost doubles the capacity of the terminal operating today.

Two maps and one more pic from user classic_warplanes and explanation on them.

The picture features the fourth floor of the terminal where a large VIP lounge will be located. There wont be one lounge per airline alliance but rather a big VIP one for all passengers that can enjoy the service. On the right, a part of the food court will be located.

The second image is a map showing the future connection between the new terminal and the old one, that will work from july 2012 to july 2014 for passengers make connections between both terminals (internal bus services will still be operational).

The last image shows how planes will be distributed along the new terminal, and the flows out and in to the terminal.

The following news article has been translated and the photos have been enlarged.

El Dorado now


An army of 300 contractors pick up the pace to complete the works of the country's main airport, before July. Contracts for the commercial areas have been completed and are to be signed with 80 companies.

The face of the new airport is taking shape. At 150 days of opening of the new International Terminal of Eldorado, Dinero magazine paid a visit to see the progress of the work. Also, all the commercial areas have been asigned, whose work will begin in March to be ready in July.

Although the works will be presented on June 29, the first flight on August 5 is the one which will give birth to a new era in Eldorado. [...]

Duty free areas, both in and out of the country, will be under the responsability of Panamanian firms Motta and Wisa, who operate these areas in the current airport.


1. The viaduct will allow travelers to leave the country by entering the second floor, while the newly landed will exit through the first floor.


2. With the advice of a danish firm, a tunnel was built measuring several hundred meters through which the bags of travelers will circulate. The entire system is automated.


3. The German company ThyssenKrupp prepares the installation of several moving walks with a total length of 900 meters. They will be the first on a colombian airport.


4. The commercial areas pass from 7,000 m2 to 20,000 m2. The register of all premises will be online (one system for all comercial areas).


5. The main hall is three times larger than the one in the terminal today. The check system is the most modern in Latin America.

This is the current condition of the same area. The picture was taken from the future VIP/Lounge area.

Third floor (check-in area). Down is first floor, baggage claim.


On the left, the area were x-rays will be posted, in order to go through emigration and waiting rooms. At the back, check-in counters.

This article and another I found (both in spanish) tell us about a company that did some surveys and found out which profitable routes are not being served from BOG and other colombian airports.

This is the other news article: http://www.larepublica.co/node/2877.



Flights to Dallas have always seemed necessary to me. AA may not be that intereted because of the competition with United on the route to Houston (geographically close) which has two daily flights. AA should try to get it anyway.

Paris and Washington already exist. Maybe they meant that more flights are needed or options. More Paris flights are unlikely because the only other interested airline was Avianca but they say the priority in Europe is London. The conglomerate Air France should open 3 frequencies BOG-AMS ... And Washington should be asked by United who has a hub at Dulles. Around 4 frequencies would be fine.

Guatemala exists technically but it's joke. I think Copa could do it nonstop.

London is the most obvious route that BOG lacks. Too bad BA does not have any B787 yet and that Virgin is only interested n vacation destinations. Their A330 would be perfect.

Thanks to classic_warplanes for his photos

Again a top view of the lounge area


External condition of the viaduct (exit).


Condition of the façade in modules 5 and 6 that in the future will be on the air side. The output beams that are to carry a fire escape.

This is on the second level. It's a restricted area that can even detect suspicious baggage and separate it into an isolated site for inspection.


The system of collecting rainwater on the roof of the airport will have the latest technology (siphon system).


The area of air conditioning system will be covered with aluminum shutters. Here is the beginning of its installation (for now it has a blue film of protection).


Future international waiting rooms. In this area there will be restaurants and dutty free shops.

The activities are usually finishing surfaces, furniture and so on which take more time so progress is not easy to appreciate, so be patient!

Now for those who want to see the first jetway installed:
