US contractor Louis Berger to project manage €300m Palma airport extension

A joint venture between America’s Louis Berger Group and Spanish engineer Cemosa has been chosen by Aena, Spain’s state-owned airport operator, to project manage the €300m extension of Palma de Mallorca International Airport on the island of Mallorca.

The airport, located 8km from Palma, is the main gateway for the millions of tourists visiting the island each year.

Work on the development includes improvements to three terminals:

  • Terminal A: The passport control area will be extended and relocated to the departures and arrivals areas, and boarding gates will be added.
  • Terminal C: Commercial spaces will be reordered.
  • Terminal D: Expansion of the airport’s west dike by 150m, expansion of the commercial area and expansion of the parking area by 944 spaces.

The project is part of Aena’s plan to modernise and expand airport facilities in Spain.

In 2017, the airport accommodated a total of 27,970,655 passengers, 208,787 operations and 10,191 tons of goods.
