This project will involve the integration of the entire terminal area of the airport, both from an architectural point of view and with the environment itself, according to AENA.
Among the planned changes, and pending the drafting of the final project, are the organization and execution of new car parks and accesses; review of urbanization and landscaping; the adequacy of the baggage claim room; the expansion of the check-in and boarding areas; or the incorporation of more commercial services.
Specifically, this Monday the files for Project Drafting Technical Assistance (ATRP) and Architecture Technical Assistance (ATA) for the comprehensive remodeling of the terminal area are going out to tender, after their approval by the Aena Board of Directors, with an amount of €6.3 million.
In addition to these files, the tender is planned in the second half of 2022 for complementary technical assistance actions for the baggage handling and aircraft assistance system, for an expected amount of 1.7 million euros that will be matched with the project drafting file, to achieve coordination in its execution and its result.
The total amount of technical assistance allocated to the global project reaches 8 million euros, as Aena advanced in a meeting with the Cabildo de Tenerife and economic and social agents of the island that took place in May.
Aena points out that it is making a huge investment effort to turn this airport “into a benchmark among its peers at an international level, offering modern infrastructures, consistent with the territory they serve and focused on quality, innovation and sustainability”.
During the first DORA (Airport Regulation Document) 2017-2022, Aena has already invested 159.4 million euros in Tenerife South Airport.
