Terminal 2 of the Tocumen Airport, in Panama, receives the first flights.
The new Terminal 2 (T2) built by Odebrecht Engineering & Construction (OEC) in Panama, through the project Expansion of the Tocumen International Airport, partially delivered five gates, in which from January 21 began to arrive flights to meet the demand of thousands of pilgrims, international journalists and special guests who will participate in the World Youth Day (WYD), a religious event that takes place in the country from January 21 to 27. T2 also had the privilege of receiving Pope Francis.
Before the start of the partial operation, Panama’s President Juan Carlos Varela, visited the facilities of the project, in the company of government authorities, a large team of engineers, architects, workers and subcontractors. Lucas Prado, Contract manager, said that “the opening five boarding gates of T2 represents the result of the unconditional dedication of a great team in reaching an important goal.”
During the execution of the work more than five thousand jobs were created. Once in full operation, the Airport will position Panama as the Hub of the Americas in terms of transportation and security, consolidating the country as a logistics, commercial and tourist center through global connections.
