Cuba is currently carrying out a $10 million project to renovate a terminal at Havana's Jose Marti International Airport, state television reported.

The work at Terminal 3 will include building new footbridges and increasing the number of check-in desks, as well as making improvements to conserve water and electricity.

Airport director Juan Carlos Quintana said the platform on the east part of the terminal would be expanded to receive larger planes.

Authorities say that, due to the complexity and scale of the project, they have had to temporarily limit the number of people who have access to the terminal.

Cuba has invested more than $70 million in airport construction work over the past three years, according to official figures. EFE
