We have begun renovating and expanding the Chacalluta Airport in Arica. Chile’s Minister of Public Works, Alfredo Moreno, recently presided over the groundbreaking ceremony for the project that will enhance the country’s air infrastructure. Work on the terminal—operated by the Sacyr-Agunsa Consortium for a period of 15 years—will include expanding the capacity of the facility and improving user service and security standards.

“This project will promote the development of the Arica and Parinacota Region and will help improve the quality of life for inhabitants. Our commitment as the concessionaire is to provide the best service to users and deliver a superior air terminal within the stipulated timeframe,” explains Juan Facuse, general manager of Sacyr Concessions Chile.

The project, whose investment exceeds 85 million dollars (70 million euros), includes expansion of the air terminal from the current 5,200 m2 to 11,600 m2, installation of five additional jetways, construction of a new cargo terminal, and the addition of three new aircraft parking bays.

The project also features the construction new aeronautical facilities, such as a control tower, administrative building, logistics building, ARFF (Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting) building, among other infrastructures. Furthermore, a new solar power plant will be installed to sustainably address the airport’s increased electricity needs.
