Travelers now have 17,500 more square meters of space at Juan Santamaría airport. Some of the space is in two new waiting areas that can seat 264 persons.
The work was completed by Aeris Holding, a Houston Airport Systems firm, that took over management of the airport in Alajuela 18 months ago. The concession runs until 2026. The company plans to invest about $30 million.
The new areas were inaugurated Wednesday.
