The Spanish government has announced plans to build a new international passenger terminal at Barcelona International Airport, amid a broader EUR2 billion (USD2.45 billion) investment by the mid-2020s in infrastructure in Catalonia.
About EUR200 million will be spent on the terminal building, plus EUR255 million on the rail link and baggage-handling system, as part of an overall EUR690 million investment package for Barcelona that includes new car parks and aircraft aprons.
Development Minister Inigo de la Serna said the 17-gate satellite terminal is planned to go live by 2026, connected to other terminals at Barcelona by rail shuttle. The project would add 15 million passengers to annual capacity at Barcelona, bringing the total to 70 million.
