I hope everyone is well...
I recently saw a time lapse video from the ATC tower which showed some work progressing on the new taxiway next to the hangers, is there a completion date for this and the remaining work within the new T2?

I'm afraid LS@MAN that I am currently as much in the dark as yourself due my contacts being on furlough.

I'll keep a note of your request and will let you know when I hear anything.

I had to make a short trip this morning which took me past the airport, so I drove around T2 via Palma Avenue. T2X appears done aside from the few hoardings left standing. Lights were on. Direction signs were up. Drop off and exit ramp is tarmacced and painted, the contentious drop off exit barriers are in place, the drop off approach ramp has been re marked (and obviously coned off) - all that were missing were cars and people. A few builders were still walking around. As we know the extension has been handed over, if the work cabins weren’t there you’d think it was open on a quiet day.

@marni1971 it's good to hear the new T2X has been handed over and is effectively complete.
I hope we see it open to passengers this year...given the increase in flights from July/August, surely it's inevitable...

Welcome Dirky Dirk to F4A and congratulations on your first post.

There have been many delays with regards to the official opening of the extension. You will find in post #1049, dated 18th January, the original opening details.

You will appreciate that at present only Terminal 1 is being used and, as at this morning, there is no date for when any of the other terminals will open. The government's decision to commence quarantine rules will not help.

Pier 1 is already open and Pier 2, by the bus lounges, will be the next to be constructed. When this construction will happen is anybodies guess.

If you have the time to read, if you haven't already done so, some of the updates that I have posted over the last 6 months then you should find the answers to many of your questions.

Please feel free to ask any other questions if you can't find the answers on here, or feel free to message me - via the envelope at the top of the screen.
