Inti Punku Consortium, led by Sacyr Engineering and Infrastructures and Cumbra, has won the contract for the design and construction works of the new passenger terminal of Jorge Chávez International Airport in Lima, Peru, granted by Lima Airport Partners (LAP). This project is one of the most significant private investments in new infrastructure development in Peru.
Miguel Angel Lozano, project manager, highlighted the importance of the technical challenge they face to develop part of the infrastructure that will place this airport among the most relevant in Latin America.
“We are tremendously motivated at the prospect of working on one of the most emblematic infrastructure projects in the country in the past few years. We are certain that the new airport will be a source of pride for all Peruvian users, and foremost, for all visitors and tourists that come to know Peru's wonders”, he commented.
New Jorge Chávez International Airport
This is our second time doing construction works to expand Jorge Chávez International Airport (Lima), where we are already working on runways.
The new Jorge Chávez terminal will begin operations in 2025 and is a significant source of employment; construction works on Lado Aire, currently underway, have more than 2,200 workers. Over the three years of construction of the new passenger terminal, we estimate to create 3,500 new jobs.
• Construction Surface: 164,635 m2
• 84,000 m3 of concrete in the terminal building
• 222,000 m2 of access roads
• 25,000 m2 built surface of auxiliary buildings.
Second runway of Jorge Chávez Airport
We are also tackling bundle 2.2 of the expansion project of Jorge Chávez International Airport for the construction of the second runway. With these works and the existing runway, the most prominent airport in Peru doubles its operational capacity.
This bundle includes the construction of a 3,480-meter-long second runway, in a total surface of more than 600 hectares, a road surface network of more than 10 km, approach lighting systems, airport lighting systems, navigational aids, medium-voltage systems, and control and surveillance equipment.
We have recently finished constructing the Delta road runway of Chiclayo International Airport in Peru. Delta runway is the first Sacyr has built and put in operation in Peru.
This project’s upcoming milestones are the completion of the final runway with rigid pavement and the execution of the center and south Aircraft Parking Platforms.
