The terminal will go from 17 to 24 control corridors and will have more automatic doors for reading boarding passes.
Spanish Airports and Air Navigation (AENA) wants to anticipate the foreseeable growth in the next few years of the Alicante-Elche airport and has authorized a series of works that, ultimately, will allow the absorption capacity of passengers to be increased even up to 40% before taking a flight. These works have begun to be carried out at the security controls that allow access to the commercial and restaurant areas, as a preliminary step to the waiting area for boarding.
This action will be taken advantage of to introduce new technological machinery, such as new X-ray apparatus, among other elements. These works, in short, aim to improve the fluidity and comfort of travelers and are part of the Quality Plan of the Alicante terminal. In this sense, the airport facility will have 24 new automatic boarding gates that will give access to 24 new security filters, compared to the 17 currently available. Of these, four will be installed in a second line to facilitate access for people with reduced mobility, among other uses.
