Aena has planned the extension of the terminal complex at Tenerife Norte Airport

Aena has announced the start of preparatory work for the terminal expansion project at Tenerife Norte Airport, also known as Ciudad de La Laguna. These works will be carried out in the ground area of the complex in response to the growing flow of passengers. The contract for the development of the expansion project has been awarded to the alliance of companies Cemosa, Fairbanks Arquitectos and Intecsa-Inarsa. Work is expected to begin no earlier than 2027.

The investment in the project will amount to 3,016,871.70 euros. The preparation of the documentation and the planning of the construction will take approximately 18 months. During the reconstruction, the expansion of the check-in, security control, boarding and baggage handling areas is foreseen.

In addition, the project envisages the improvement of parking facilities and land development, including the upgrading and expansion of equipment and furnishings to accommodate the new conditions. Collaboration between the project partners will continue for a further 18 months to support the implementation of the construction works. The aim of this project is to increase the level of comfort and operational efficiency while maintaining the unique architecture of the building.

This project is planned to be included in the new airport development plan (DORA) for the period 2027-2031, taking into account the recent increase in tourism activity. Aena considers that this five-year period will be the largest investment in its history.

In addition to Tenerife, Aena’s plans include the expansion of Madrid-Barajas Airport to transform it into an international hub, as well as the possible expansion of Barcelona-El Prat Airport with a third runway and the modernisation of airports in Valencia, Alicante-Elche and Palma de Mallorca. In Tenerife, the infrastructure of Tenerife South Airport will also be improved, including the reorganisation of the terminal and parking areas, as well as the improvement of the development and landscaping.

The architectural firm that forms part of the winning consortium has previously worked on projects at the airports of Gran Canaria, Tenerife Sur, Alicante-Elche and Málaga-Costa del Sol, and has also designed the control towers at Málaga and Barcelona-El Prat airports.

Internationally, the studio has participated in the modernisation of the airports of El Dorado in Bogotá and Rafael Núñez in Cartagena, as well as Jorge Chávez Airport in Lima (Peru).
