TIME FOR RENOVATION: The Pablo Ruiz Picasso terminal
WHEN a traveller arrives at Malaga Airport’s T2 or T3, be it to catch a plane or getting off one, the first thing they notice is that although they form a whole, the twins were obviously dressed by different mothers, or in T2’s case, the grandmother.
After 25 years in service and a few patch-up jobs, the dowdy looking poorer sister is about to get a new dress, a makeover and have her nails done. It appears the time has come for the Pablo Ruiz Picasso terminal to be renovated. The idea is that the paving, ceilings, bathrooms, paint, air conditioning and fire detection systems will all be adapted to match the image of the newer terminal.
There is €9 million included in the 2016 state budgets for the makeover, although it is unlikely to start within a year. AENA airport management has put drawing up of the project out to public tender with a budget of €502,000 and announced that the total time for the work will be an estimated 33 months.
Companies interested in carrying out the work will have to bear in mind that it must affect activity at the airport as little as possible, meaning they will probably be expected to work at night. Let’s hope they keep the lights on, because we all know what the result is when one gets dressed in the dark.
