At Lima Airport Partners we are moving forward with the Jorge Chávez International Airport Expansion Project. In this way, we have started the competition for the selection of the winning team that will design and build the new passenger terminal, scheduled to be awarded in the third quarter of this year and whose delivery is expected in 2025.
In the midst of the National State of Emergency generated by the COVID-19 pandemic and in a totally uncertain scenario for the aviation sector, with significant delays and cancellations of large airport infrastructure projects globally, at LAP we maintain our commitment to remove advance the Expansion Project, initiating a competitive design process that will last approximately 7 months.
The design of the new terminal is based on maximizing the efficient use of the existing infrastructure to respond to the new needs of passengers, airlines and the aviation industry in general.
Likewise, the design has focused on 6 fundamental principles: (a) expandable infrastructure, which will allow the airport to grow according to changes in demand; (b) efficiency, to maximize current capacity, reducing processes and minimizing connection times; (c) security, through the implementation of biometric solutions and reliable authentication systems; (d) sustainability, aimed at minimizing the energy consumption of both the terminal and the services that support the operation; (e) friendly, aimed at optimizing the passenger experience, under an intuitive and simple concept; and finally, (f) a design that will connect with the roots of Peru in its architecture, shaping our rich cultural heritage.
At LAP we reiterate our commitment to provide Peru with a new airport, working to carry out the Expansion Project, a key element in the economic reactivation of the country as part of the projects prioritized by the Peruvian Government.
