Algerian authorities are planning to build a new Terminal at the Houari Boumediene international airport in the Algerian capital to keep pace with soaring air traffic and passenger growth.
Construction work is set to begin in 2014 and expected to be completed by 2018.

The New Terminal Building, designed to have an annual passenger throughput of 10 million person-time, will get to Grade A standard of International Civil Aviation Association.
