He added that the feasibility of the project relies on the construction of a highway linking Comayagua with Tegucigalpa.
If no agreement is reached with InterAirports, the concession for the new Honduran airport at Palmerola could be put out to tender.
The Honduran government authorized the immediate reopening of Tegucigalpa's Toncontín airport for flights by large passenger aircraft.
Eight companies from five countries have shown interest in the tender to build an international airport at the Palmerola military base.
Discrepancies between the government and the concessionaire for Honduran airports has prevented the signing of the contract for adapting Palmerola to be the main airport in Honduras.
