Aruba Gateway 2030, 1st phase of construction has commenced
Aruba Airport Authority N.V. (AAA) is proud to share that the first construction works towards the Gateway 2030 project were recently initiated. The main objective of this phase of construction is to relocate the airport’s main utilities into a new central utility plant, and relocate the main security gate; both of which are necessary in order to make the space available for the expansion of the main terminal facilities.
The construction works are being carried out adjacent to the on-going West Apron project, which will provide 3 new additional aircraft parking positions and connect the new taxiway “kilo” to the main terminal apron. Both projects are expected to be completed at the end of this year.
Several groundworks are taking place at the moment, including the location and documentation of existing cables in excavation areas, installation of new sewer connections, and the relocation of the airside and landside fence. Additionally, new temporary Project Management Offices have been built on the site, specially dedicated for the Gateway 2030 project.
