“We’re very pleased to have obtained the green light for building Pier G. Given the prolonged permit process, however, we’re now analyzing how to arrange Pier G’s construction schedule. Our goal is still to offer additional state-of-the-art handling capacities as soon as possible to relieve our existing Terminals 1 and 2. The plan is to award the contract for the construction of Pier G to a general contractor by early 2019.”Fraport spokesperson
