In reference to the report aired on Cuarto Poder last Sunday about recent changes of officials in the Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MTC), in a context where the proposal of dual operation of the Jorge Chávez International Airport Expansion Project is being evaluated; Lima Airport Partners (LAP) informs the public the following: Regarding the alleged change of the Director of the General Directorate of Civil Aeronautics (DGAC) and the departure of the Vice Minister of Transportation, Lima Airport Partners categorically rejects any insinuation related to such changes. LAP is not involved in any removal and/or decision made by such entity. 2. In accordance with Law No. 30424, LAP implements a Crime Prevention Model and a Compliance System, which prevent, detect and respond to any indication of crime related to acts of corruption, conflicts of interest, among others; among which the execution of the Expansion Project is governed. 3. In line with the proposal presented to the MTC, LAP maintains its commitment to ongoing private investment of more than US$ 1.6 billion, to provide Peru with a new airport with a capacity to serve 37 million passengers per year by 2025, serving two terminals simultaneously. Likewise, LAP will continue to develop the infrastructure so that it is always in line with the service levels of the Concession Contract. 4. LAP has uninterruptedly maintained the expansion works within the framework of the concession contract and despite the pandemic -which produced the greatest crisis in the history of the aeronautical industry worldwide-, in the coming months of this year, will deliver to Corpac the new Control Tower, as well as the second runway.
