Lack of space limits Jorge Newbery airport expansion - AA2000 (Argentina)
Argentine airport operator Aeropuertos Argentina 2000 (AA2000) will be unable to carry out any further expansion projects at capital Buenos Aires' Aeroparque Jorge Newbery airport, the firm's infrastructure director, Marcelo Minoliti, told BNamericas.


"Aeroparque cannot get bigger because there is no space available to expand," Minoliti said, adding the airport's capacity is currently limited due to it having only one runway.


AA2000 is currently carrying out maintenance works at the facility, which will remain closed from November 3-December 1. The works are budgeted at 70mn pesos (US$17.8mn).


The improvements involve repairing the airport's runway, upgrading its access roads and modernizing the overall terminal, Minoliti said.


Due to the lack of capacity at the facility, AA2000 aims for Jorge Newbery to become a highly efficient airport serving local and regional destinations, the executive added.


The airport is expected to serve 6.5mn people by year-end.
