Frank Pais International airport in Holguin Cuba improves operations

Posted August 14, 2007 by publisher in Cuba Travel.

The international airport in the eastern Cuban province of Holguin is being modernized and enlarged to improve its operational capacity.

According to experts, the works will allow the airport to handle an average of 1,200 passengers per hour.

The strategy includes improving traffic services and customs and immigration booths, and the installation of cutting-edge equipment to guarantee the work.

Airport executives pointed out that after the works are completed, an area of 1,300 square meters will be used to receive travelers. They added that the works have been done without stopping operations.

The enlargement and modernization of the airport will create better conditions and greater comfort for passengers, in addition to reducing their stay at the air terminal.

The works also included improving the ways of access and air-conditioning, communications, electrical and luggage-handling systems.
