ADP to invest USD35 million to upgrade Pisco airport

Consortium Aeropuertos del Peru (ADP) will invest USD35 million to upgrade the countrys Pisco airport. Perus transport and communications ministry (MTC) handed over the administration and operation of the airport to the consortium, comprised of firms GBH and Swissport. The airports improvement project includes the construction of a new passenger terminal and a cargo terminal.

Works are expected to be carried out during 2008 and 2009. Pisco airport is part of a 25-year airport concession package awarded to ADP in 2006. The package also included terminals Tumbes, Talara (both in Piura department), Trujillo (La Libertad), Anta-Huaraz (Ancash), Chachapoyas (Amazonas), Cajamarca, Tarapoto (both in San Martin), Iquitos (Loreto) and Pucallpa (Ucayali). Chiclayo airport in Lambayeque department and one serving the city of Piura are also part of the package but, as in the case of Pisco, they have air-force infrastructure and so transfers to the concessionaire must first be approved by the countrys defense ministry. ADP will invest USD220 million in the 12 airports over 25 years with USD120 million to be spent during the first few years.
