- Building of the new terminal at La Palma Airport is nearly complete and with the airport desperate for space, the building will open whilst final work is still being completed.Only two thirds of the gates will be open initially and the airbridges will not be finalised so when it does open in early summer, passengers will still have to walk to the planes. Everything is due to be finished by August and then La Palma will have a fabulous 21st century ready airport.
