Progress on updating airport

Has the renovation work started on the airport? If so, does anyone know when it will be completed? What renovations being done?

Sorry for so many questions but last time we visited we had to queue for 90 minutes to go through passport control in sweltering heat and then got caged in a tiny and dangerously over crowded departure lounge in what seemed like 100 degree heat. The whole airport just seemed to be over capacity and totally chaotic. Just wondered if any of the re-modelling was aimed at making the airport more efficient, with more than 1 person checking passports and bigger check in areas/departure lounges.

Yes work has started but you won't see any major changes inside the current building until the new terminal is finished, which will be another year.

Thanks eveyone. Does anyone know if the new terminal will be finished by June 2019 or is it more likely to be end 2019? The article didn't have any dates in it. All sounds very positive though.
