France’s Vinci Airports purchased the airports management portfolio of Airports Worldwide, which includes operations at 12 airports.

Included in the purchase was a stake in two Costa Rican airports, SJO in San José and LIR in Liberia.

“The acquisition of the two main airports in Costa Rica, an increasingly popular tourist destination, strengthens VINCI Airports’ positions in South and Central America, where it manages the airports in Santiago, Chile and Salvador, Brazil, together with six airports in the Dominican Republic including the airport in Santo Domingo,” said a company statement.
