Dear all,
Here you can see some recent photos of the yet unfinished new terminal area in Alicante (LEAL, ALC). Supposedly, they will finish the work in 2010.
Regards,
Dme.

That's the multi-storey car park, I think. Thanks for the link. It looks like it's really taking shape. Although I heard from a colleague at IB, it was opening in 2011. But everything is manana manana, so we'll see. The new terminal looks much better from the runway.

I've been to ALC some time ago, nice little airport but it does seem to be growing very fast! Correct me if I'm wrong but this new terminal at least duplicates the current capacity, if not more?

The design seems to be rather modular which should give provide for flexibility. Are there any plans for a second runway in the distant future? The way this terminal is built seems to hint towards the possibility, and looking at Google Maps there seems to be nothing in its way as long as the area is not developed.

Are there any plans to upgrade the road accesses? That would be needed in my opinion. How about a rail connection?

Yes, more or less duplicates the actual terminal. There are now five fingers and there will be 14 new fingers. Therefore a total of 19 fingers will be operative in the new airport.

Supposedly, the new runway would be situated at the north of the present terminal (the buildings would be located at the center of the airport them). But we will have to wait 10-15 years to see it, if the traffic increases of course.

A new tramway is being built in Alicante by the Autonomous Government. There are only two small lines now, but in the near future (one-three years time, if you come to Alicante the city seems to be turned upside down) there will be two more lines, one connecting the north-west (Alicante-San Vicente) and another one connecting the south (Alicante Train Station-Airport-Elche).

The Central Government is building the High Velocity Train between Madrid and Alicante/Murcia. The train will go from between Alicante and Murcia and one stop will be at the airport. But you never know for sure ...

Just for your info, http://www.fgvalicante.com/tram/html/descargas/pdf.asp.
