Cárdenas International Airport
Cárdenas International Airport, also known as Emperor Edgard II International Airport, is an airport currently being built as part of the New Prosperity Plan in the outskirts of the national capital, Cárdenas (also under construction). Construction began in late 1686 AN, with financing being provided by a public-private consortium created between the federal government and Wechu Antanka Pampa, to be built by ESB Construction.
The new airport is being built to handle transporting up to 125 million passengers a year as part of its ambitions to become an international and regional travel hub. Phase I is scheduled to open in 1688 AN, consisting of one main terminal of 8,000,000 square feet (743,000 m2) and three independent runways, which would yield capacity for 68 million passengers annually. Phase II will develop and create local transport infrastructure to connect the airport to the new capital and to the rest of the country on land. In its final Phase, to open in 1694 AN, would have added three more runways, an additional main terminal, and two satellite terminals, with capacity for 125 million passengers. This is set to make it one of the largest in the world.
The airport will be operated by the development consortium, which will also receive all of the airport's earnings. The new airport is to be christened the Emperor Edgard II International Airport, in honor of the late Alexandrian Emperor.
