--> The article unveils that the airport's operator its aiming for a late august opening for commercial flights. July will be used for the testing of every single aspect of the new building.

When opened this building will operate as the international terminal with 9 jetway briges. National flights will remain in the old building as further expansion is under construction.

Someone asked about the structure's ceiling. They have been working on it but not in the higher areas. In may this activity will be in full swing.

Westernmost jetway bridge (module 3)


Jetway bridge (module 10). No ramps here.


Easternmost jetway bridge site. It won't have ramps and it will be "L" shaped.


Arrivals area. Families will be waiting here.


Baggage claim, at other side of the windows in the last picture.


Ceiling in the baggage claim area.


Waiting room on the easternmost side of the terminal. Carpet, ceiling, illumination and furniture still missing.


Future chapel in the third floor next to the check-in area.


Glass is to be installed here to separate emigration, X rays and security checks.


Check-in counters

Jetways have been installed in 8 exits and the installation of the double jetway door is underway. Only one remains to be installed, in the easternmost side of the building.

Any idea why the aerobridges have been fitted even though the apron work isn't complete...?

Most of the apron has been completet by now. I'd say 80%. Some parts havent been done because they're going to be inner roads for airport staff to use. They may be the last pieces of apron to be finished. A lot of dirt too

Jetways @ BOG

I have a question mr CW, if the new terminal has the concept of saving energy and having luminous spaces, WHY ARE THE NEW JETWAYS METALLIC INSTEAD OF BEING GLASS JETWAYS???

In mi opinion glass jetways would make the terminal look nicer and more modern than metalic jetways. The actual terminal has them and they look awful, and even though the new terminal jetways are also brand new I think it would have been way better choosing glass jetways.

This matter was raised in a discussion on another forum about BOG, and the answer CW gave was that they chose the metal jetways for security reasons.

I think are metalic for security reasons. If there is a fire would be easier for the people to cross it. Faster evacuation without hesitation.
Although I think its for economic benefits. They could recive money for advertising expose .
