Important information brought to us by user Jota_bog. It has been translated from Spanish.

Revision of works by Aerocivil: From Sept 5th to Oct. 2nd

Start of operations at the new terminal:Oct. 2nd

The general idea is that from midnight of October 1st, flights will start to use the new building. Check-in will still be done in the old terminal. Passengers will have to exit through the national pier side, walk some meters of sidewalk and then enter the new building in order to take the elevator to the immigration area and then board their flight through the new jetway bridges.

This means that between Oct. 2nd and Oct. 24th check-in and baggage handling will be done in the old terminal and immigration and boarding will be done in the new terminal.

From Oct. 24th on, all international flights will operate from the new terminal, including check-in and baggage handling services.

Otro factor importante es la flexibilidad de la plataforma del T2

Another important fact is the handling of aircraft in the new terminal's platform:

* 14 type C positions a/c (B737, A320)
* 7 type E positions a/c (A330, A340, B747)
* 5 type D positions, 2 type E positions and 1 type F position (D= B757, B767; E= A330, A340, A340; F=A380, B748)

Excellent photos of BOG. The viaduct is almost finished and further advances on the building can be seen.

Thanks to user DaveSnow

--> According to the article, the terminal will operate until December. This DOES NOT mean that until December the terminal will start to operate but rather that the new terminal will operate at 100% only until december. From late September or early October the building will gradually begin operations, as I explain later.

Assuming that the work is delivered in 11 days (as planned), giving OPAIN (the contractor) one month to review their work and one or two months for Aerocivil to do the same, the new terminal would be operational, little by little, between the end of September and early October.

In addition, according to OPAIN manager, after a month of review by the Aerocivil (early September probably) the terminal will receive flights arriving from abroad to help check the new baggage claim system, immigration filters and other equipment . If everything works as it should, departing flights will begin using the new terminal. The check-in system will not work, probably, until November.

When all international flights start to use the new terminal, construction of the two "piers" will begin. National flights will still be operated from the old terminal but only from the jetway bridges on the "inside" platform.

The old terminal, used since the 50's, will be completely demolished in late 2013. National flights will then operate from remote positions and Avianca's "Puente Aéreo", as well as possibly some new bridges of the new building.

The construction of the piers, and of the whole unified terminal, will finish in late June 2014 and will likely open fully in October of that year.

After 2014, when the current master plan is completed, new extensions will be considered, most likely towards the east on both sides of the access avenue (towards the national cargo terminal and the Puente Aéreo).

The current master plan ends in 2014. By then, the whole new integrated building will be finished, as well as a new control tower.

However, by the end of 2012, new studies will be revealed announcing if a new runway has to be built, if another airport is necessary to divert general aviation and where will the new extensions of the passenger terminal will be built.

Avianca and American Airlines will have VIP lounges in the new terminal

Having VIP lounges only for American Airlines & Avianca may seem too little, however nowadays it really means VIP lounges for One World and Star Alliance, doesn't it?

In that respect the VIP lounge for Avianca would also serve Lufthansa, Copa, Tam, Air Canada, United and Taca -of course-, etc; while the VIP lounge for American Airlines would serve Lan & Iberia, etc.

A couple of questions:

What about Air France first class (or equivalent) passengers, for example? ...and in that respect any other Skyteam first class passengers; would they have a VIP lounge?

On the other hand, in the specific case of Aerolíneas Argentinas (which has got a codeshare agreement with Avianca) would first class passengers of it be able to use de VIP lounge of Avianca?
