There will also be mov­ing side­walks con­nect­ing Ter­mi­nals 1, 2 and 3, a shop­ping mall re­plete with a va­ri­ety of restaurants, and a new au­to­mated self­serve bag check-in set up.

No, there are no new mega air­port projects afoot just now in Latin Amer­ica, noth­ing cer­tainly on the grandiose scale of what’s hap­pen­ing in the Mid­dle East at places such as Doha and Is­tan­bul.
