The first phase of expansion will see the existing passenger capacity go from 2.2 million to 3.5 million per year, before adding 1.5 million more capacity in the next phase of the project. Total investment of the project is 331 million euros, of which 243 million is earmarked for the terminal design and construction, and the remainder for the maintenance of airport infrastructure over the entire period of the thirty year concession.
