New Airport

Hi,

Does anyone have any information on the opening of the new airport, I have seen reports quoting 'early next year' but nothing confirming expected dates, I would be grateful if anyone knows/has read anything more than that.

Thanks in advance,

Mark.

I don't think anyone is aware of exact date but I can take a guess that it should be ready by Mar-Apr-2014.

Will keep you posted

Take Care

@mark: the new airport is still a long way off. there may be a partial opening (transit only) towards the middle of next year but there have been so many false dates given so far that no one will give a definite answer - they cant, there is still so much construction being undertaken! A good example: In January 2013 the CEO stated that he expected the airport to be fully operational by 2018. In a further statement in May he then made the comment .... expected by 2020!
