The national government will invest $15 billion pesos (US$ 744 million) in an ambitious expansion of the Ezeiza International Airport, the Transport Ministry confirmed Tuesday.

By 2021, the government hopes to dramatically increase activity at the country’s largest airport. Ezeiza currently receives 10 million passengers each year. The airport’s total size would increase from the current 58,400 square metres to 217,230 square metres.

The redesigned airport will feature 52 gates from the current 27, with six new check-in gates and over one hundred self-check-in facilities, the Transport Ministry confirmed. Parking space will grow 53 percent to 5,264 lots.

The airport will also be able to receive four times as many aircraft and will feature a new air traffic control tower. 

Renovations at Ezeiza began in 2016 and will continue through 2021.
