The project involves extension of terminal building, relocation of the petrol station, the construction of five new buildings for a range of commercial and leisure uses. The terminal building extension will be developed in two phases.
Terminal Building Extension phases:
In phase one, the US$9 million project construction includes, the number of check-in desks will go up from 28 to 35, two more security lanes will be added and the queuing lane will be lengthened by 140m.
The La Valette lounge and the security screening area will be relocated, a move which will see the latter area double its footprint to 700m2.
Phase two will entail the construction of an extension of the check-in hall and the departures area, estimated at US$21 million.
The project is planned to be developed in four phases.
The first phase of construction includes construction of skyparks. The five new buildings for commercial and leisure facilities comprise:
a. The construction of 2,300m2 supermarket on which the existing centrally located car park will be roofed over.
b. The construction of 3,200m2, seven-story block which will include commercial and office space at ground level, including double height showrooms.
c. The construction of 1,400m2 new multi-story hotel development.
d. The construction of a commercial center with a maximum floor area of 2,500m2 per floor. The complex will incorporate both commercial and office space at ground level, with double height showrooms.
e. The construction of two-story block which will include commercial facilities on two levels, each with a floor space of 7,000m2.
Another building will be constructed to incorporate a recreational zone with a total area of 2,000m2. This will replace the existing staff car park, which will be relocated to a separate area within the site boundary.
The existing fuel station will be relocated to provide improved access to main highway.
The expansion features associated modifications to existing roads and service infrastructure and new roads and services as well as associated landscaping. The expansion of parking facilities to include 2,415 parking spaces for visitors, 518 spaces for staff, 328 taxi spaces and 48 coach spaces.

On June 8, 2017, MIA issued a tender to appoint a contractor for civil, excavation and structural works at a multi-storey car park building with a submission deadline on July 14, 2017.
