It would appear that Aeris, the new construction company tasked with the next stage of expansion for the Juan Santamaria Airport plans to completely open the section before May 8th, four weeks ahead of schedule.
Between April 28th and the 8th May, they will open the first floor (level with the runway), which will serve passengers entering the country.
By May 15th Aeris plans to open the second floor, where there will be more room for airline counters and security devices for passengers leaving the country.
In addition, there also will be more craft shop and cafes areas.
According to Carlos Plass of Aeris, there are 400 workers completing the metallic finishes of the building, the placement of the ceramic floor and other details.
All this last minute rushing, will allow the president Oscar Arias to cut the ribbon at an airport that was nearly five years late (58 months) at the conclusion of the project.
