As per the tender specifications, TAV already has the operating rights of the airport's international terminal until 2015, maintaining these operating rights until the end of 2032. The capacity of the current 28,500sqm domestic terminal is to be increased to 204,500sqm with the new terminal building slated for completion by 2015, and a total investment estimated at around EUR250 million. The construction of the new terminal building is planned to commence in 2012. Until the new terminal building is completed, domestic and international terminal passengers will continue at the existing international terminal building. Service charges per passenger have been determined as EUR15 for outgoing international passengers and EUR3 for outgoing domestic passengers throughout the operation period. EUR610 million (VAT excluded) will be paid as the total concession lease amount to DHMI for the entirety of the operating period until 2032.

The Global Airport Development (GAD World) conference was held in Lisbon, between 29-Nov and 01-Dec-2016. This CAPA report chronicles the presentations and debates that took place on the first two days, including selected ‘stream’ sessions on both days.
There was, inevitably, a political overlay to the event, with the (Jun-2016) UK referendum on continuing membership of the European Union (‘Brexit’), the (Nov-2016) election of President Trump in the US and associated ‘uncertainty’ dominating events.
