New systems at Jorge Chávez Airport

The Minister of Transport and Communications, Paola Lazarte, announced the signing of an agreement with Lima Airport Partners (LAP) that will allow for the start of operations of the new control tower and second landing strip at Jorge Chávez International Airport on April 1, 2023. According to Lazarte, this agreement will not result in any compensation or payment to the concessionaire.

The new infrastructure, including the control tower and runway, will enhance operational safety for takeoff and landing of aircraft and provide more space for aircraft parking for airport operators. The passenger terminal, currently under construction, is set to be completed by 2025 and will be able to handle 65 flights per hour and accommodate up to 30 million passengers annually.

Lazarte explained that a joint work schedule has been established between the state and the concessionaire, with the participation of the General Directorate of Civil Aeronautics, to meet the new deadlines for the start of operations. The goal is to transform the airport into a hub in Latin America.
