Apparentely the long walk outdoors currently needed to get from the international terminal to the domestic one will be a thing of the past. Apparentely somewhere there's gonna be a tunnel connecting both terminals (I haven't seen anything), which is scheduled to open soon.
This tunnel is badly needed as it is a pain in the ass to walk with all your luggage from one terminal to the other, especially if it's raining.

This has been speculated since I first started flying into CCS domestic and onto an Int'l flight......that was 1997.
Yes, it is really needed, maybe adding some moving walkways or something....but I won't believe it until I see it. Although I have seen recent reports written by you and other people flying into CCS and the airport looks a lot different than it did back in the days.

Good idea, a tunnel. It really doesn't have to be so expensive, just a walkway and shade or some kind of cover would be good too. And clear directions make a difference too.
Quoting B4real (Reply 3): The bridge is still in shambles, and the transport time is long from Maiquetia to downtown Caracas.
But are they working on it? This traffic hazard is one of the reasons I skipped CCS this year. Hopefully next summer we'll have a new bridge? This is an excellent opportunity for the current government to show what they can really accomplish before the elections

Lamedianaranja: Somewhat ironic that the American is giving the Venezuelan information on this topic, but yes there is activity there to remedy the situation. I will ask my hosts next time when they think it will be ready.
