Lima’s international airport is getting a major expansion.

Managed by Lima Airport Partners (with Fraport AG the majority owner), construction at the airport will begin in 2018. The expansion will cost approximately US $1.5 billion.

The Jorge Chávez International Airport will get a new state-of-the-art passenger terminal and other infrastructure to meet increasing traffic and to further enhance the customer experience at Lima Airport, says Lima Airport Partners (LAP). A second runway will also be built.

One of South America’s fastest growing airports, it welcomed 18.8 million passengers in 2016 and recorded double-digit growth of 10.1 percent year-on-year.  During the first half of 2017, LIM served about 9.7 million passengers, an increase of 8.4 percent compared to the same period in the previous year.

The LAP concession runs until 2041.
