Recently, Raúl Revuelta Musalem, general director of Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico (GAP), announced that the Puerto Vallarta International Airport will receive just over 215 million dollars for the construction of a second terminal.
“The Puerto Vallarta International Airport has registered a growth of 62 percent during the last five years, a spectacular fact that has been quite noticeable nationwide,” Revuelta shared.
This second terminal will be developed on 452,084 square feet and will be able to accommodate up to eight extra planes. In addition, it will have 15 boarding gates to increase its operational capacity.
Renowned architect Benjamín Romano, founder of the firm LBR&A Arquitectos, will be in charge of this project, which will have a sustainable focus, since it will use renewable energy through Net Zero technology, as well as a luxurious, modern and minimalist design.
Part of this budget will also be used to remodel some existing spaces, as well as the main facade of the first terminal.
“Currently, the Puerto Vallarta International Airport has a record of 440 weekly operations, because in addition to national destinations, it connects with different cities in countries such as the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Panama.” —Raúl Revuelta Musalem, general director of GAP.
