Mexican airport operator OMA to invest USD40 million in Monterrey's new terminal

Mexican Grupo Aeroportuario del Centro Norte (OMA) announced in a statement the formal start of construction on Terminal B of Monterrey International Airport, which will represent a total investment of approximately 40 million dollars. The 1.5 million-a-year passenger terminal is expected to begin operations in the fourth quarter of 2008.

The investment in Terminal B is included in OMA's Master Development Program (MDP), and is part of a larger global investment program.

Terminal B will be located east of the existing main Terminal A. The 21,000 square meters structure will have two levels plus a mezzanine. The commercial area will have 2,000 square meters for shops, restaurants and other services, and there will be a new parking area for 450 vehicles.

VM Transfer, a joint venture between Victor Marquez Architectos and Aerports de Paris Ingeniería, designed the terminal. The 113.9 million pesos (10.6 million dollars) contract for the foundation, structure, and complementary works of the terminal building has been assigned to Empresas ICA.

Grupo Aeroportuario del Centro Norte operates 13 international airports in nine states of central and northern Mexico. OMA employs over 900 people, and its strategic shareholders are Mexican ICA and French Aeroports de Paris.

Its airports serve Monterrey, Mexico's second largest metropolitan area, the tourist destinations of Acapulco, Mazatlan, and Zihuatanejo, and nine other regional centers and border cities. © 2007 NoticiasFinancieras - NoticiasFinancieras - All rights reserved
