Consortium led by Sacyr Concesiones begins operations at Chacalluta Airport in Arica (Chile)

Construction work will start in the second half of 2020.

This will be the second air terminal to be operated by this consortium, following the successful experience with the Puerto Montt Airport.

The consortium led by Sacyr Concesiones has today begun operations under its responsibility at Chacalluta Airport, in the city of Arica, in the north of Chile.

With this, the consortium has taken control of the air terminal for a period of 15 years. Its objective is to provide a high-quality service and maintain the facilities to a high standard.

During the transfer ceremony, the new general manager of the Arica Airport, Ivan Tejada, emphasized the importance of the project, stating that “for us it is a privilege to be able to carry out the development of this infrastructure, because we are conscious that an airport is an entry point that launches the development of a region. We want Arica Airport to be a point of reference, as is the one we are doing in Puerto Montt, with a level of service that is among the best in the country.”

The project, with an investment estimated at some EUR 73 million, consists in the expansion and improvement of the existing air terminal, more than doubling its size from 5,352 m2 to 11,592 m2. This should allow the facility to cater for approximately 1,145,000 passengers annually.

The works, which will start in the second half of 2020, include the installation of five new departure gates, replacing the existing two gates, increasing the parking capacity from four to seven aircraft, and the expansion of vehicle access out of the airport and pedestrian access to the interior, thus facilitating movements around the site.
