Work on Juan Santamaría Export Terminal Begins

March 5, 2004

THE remodeling of JuanSantamaríaInternationalAirport’s cargo terminal began last week. Once completed, the new terminal is expected to make it easier for exporters to transport their products from San José to other countries by air, the daily La República reported.

Given the importance the cargo terminal has for the export sector, Alterra Partners – the private group in charge of remodeling and operating the airport, plans to complete the remodeling by the end of March.

The remodeling of the cargo terminal entails rebuilding 5,120 meters and installing new lighting. The project will cost approximately ¢37 million ($880,000).
