Presently, the airport serves 4.5 million passengers per year. Conservative estimates indicate that passenger volumes will more than double by 2010 and reach 16 million by 2020.
A Plan for Tomorrow that Works Today"Our vision is to help Peru create a modern international transportation facility that will serve as Peru's gateway to the world," said Dan Chao, Executive Vice President and Managing Director of Bechtel Enterprises. "And our team brings a unique set of global experiences well suited to serve both the short-term and long term needs of the airport." To realize this, the Consortium has developed a comprehensive master plan to significantly improve levels of service in the near term and to create a long-term strategy to enhance revenues through airport commercial development and air cargo growth.
In the near term, the Consortium will upgrade the current airport terminal, build a new curvilinear concourse to accommodate more passengers, create a world-class retail center--Peru Plaza--within the airport. Other improvements will include construction of a new in-terminal hotel and enhancement of air cargo and general aviation operations.
Over the long term, the Consortium will lead an effort to finance and build a second parallel runway and new terminal complex; expand the retail strategy, create a new air freight complex that will target express couriers and sea-air cargo operations; and support industrial development on airport land west of the new runway.
