Phase 3 of the expansion of Jorge Chávez International Airport includes the construction of a second runway, a larger number of aircraft parking spaces and taxiways, a new terminal for passengers, a new cargo terminal, and additional access ways to the airport, among other facilities.
In order to continue with the expansion process, the Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MTC) will hand over the remaining 2’961,486.88 m² before December 31, 2015. Currently, Néstor Gambetta Avenue runs through the future second runway. To resolve this inconvenience, the Government has authorized the construction of a bypass tunnel.
It should be pointed out that the land handed over in 2013 was subject to an environmental audit aimed at identifying environmental liabilities (hydrocarbon-polluted soils, wells, silos, etc.). Additionally, the engineering and construction works for the perimeter fence around the transferred lands were launched. The project includes the construction of approximately 5 linear km of definitive fence, a lighting system, and a road around the perimeter fence.
The tender for the design and engineering of the future airport was won by Arcadis. The latter has sub-contracted a group of recognized design, architecture, and engineering firms, such as Grimshaw and Ranboll. The final design will represent an investment of $ 17 million.
In the future these infrastructure and capacity enhancements will improve the airport's ability to receive more passengers and airlines wishing to fly to Peru; and will improve connectivity among Peru's regions. In this way, LAP will be in a position to satisfy our users' expectations and create value in a sustained fashion for the benefit of investors, the public, and the country as a whole.
