Costa Rica airport expands to meet projected long-term growth
Aeris estimated the cost of the work finished in April at $30 million, and that of the additional work to be completed by the end of this year at $10 million.
Two additional expansion phases are in final discussions and the plans for these will be submitted to the Civil Aviation Technical Council (CETAC) by Aug. 31, said Aeris.
Preliminary conclusions show that if all four planned expansion phases are completed, the airport will have the capacity to handle the increased demand and passengers from now until 2029, when an estimated 12 million passengers per year are expected. The projection is based on an annual estimated growth rate of 5.2 percent, said Aeris.
