Curaçao International Airport has undergone almost $10 million in recent renovations to its facilities, according to the Curaçao Tourism Board.
The renovations include adding air-conditioning to the check-in hall and screening area; updates to the runway; a new Curaçao Airport app and the development of what’s called a “Jet Centre Curaçao,” to “enhance passengers’ experience upon arrival and departure,” according to the Airport.
The airport is planing a wider expansion that would increase its capacity from 1.6 million to 2.5 million passengers per year, with the concomitant goal of becoming an “important passenger and cargo hub for the Southern Caribbean region.”
That expansion includes a new airport plaza, a “rejuvenation” of the Hato Handling building, among other changes.
The plan is for a wider $48 million on projects from 2014 to 2018.
