Daniel Oduber International Airport in the province of Liberia in Costa Rica is planning to construct a new airport terminal worth $35m.

The new terminal will have a multi-level, 23,000m² facility to serve 1,500 passengers a day.

The design documents will be completed in the next five months and the construction will start in the following six months.

The province of Guanacaste will oversee operation and maintenance of the terminal for the first 20 years. The Ministry of Public Works and Transport has already invested nearly $6.7m for the expansion of hangars and storage units.

The terminal is expected to be open by May 2010.

Liberia’s Daniel Oduber International Airport recorded 454,693 passengers in 2008, with most of the country’s international flights landing at this airport.
