The signing of the contract took place during a ceremony chaired by the President of the Republic, Pedro Castillo, accompanied by the Ministers of Transport and Communications, Foreign Trade and Tourism, and Economy and Finance, among others. invited authorities.
The president said: “We must understand the great importance that Jorge Chávez Airport has for the country, as the main gateway to Peru and, in recent times, a key element in the economic recovery and the struggle against the pandemic. This expansion will position the country as one of the main logistics and tourism hubs in the region, allowing the arrival of more tourists and more airlines.

The Inti Punku consortium is a strategic alliance between Sacyr Ingeniería e Infraestructuras, a global infrastructure development company with extensive experience in the airport sector; and Cumbra, one of the main Peruvian construction companies. Currently, the consortium is carrying out the construction of the new aerodrome and a second runway.
