The executive director of Fomilenio II, Wiliam Pleitez, told Elmundo.sv that "...The pre-feasibility study to determine improvements at the airport ... has already been authorized. "

The endorsement to analyze the possibility of using funds from Fomilenio to expand the airport was given days after the third and final call for companies and inverstors interested in participating in developing the projects under the progam Apuesta por InversionES was announced.

"... The official explained that the Apuesta por Inversiones program, which is part of Investment Climate component, has now approved seven feasibility studies for the provision of public goods and services as a lever for private investment; and recently two other prefeasibility studies were approved. One for Ilopango Airport and one for the Zacatecoluca Technology Park."

Backwards Step for Cargo Terminal at Airport

In El Salvador, the government rejected the draft tender and the economic model proposed by Fomilenio II for the management of the cargo terminal at the Monseñor Romero Airport.

Fomilenio II had planned to launch the tender for the Public Private Association (APP) in the last months of 2018, however, the Executive Port Authority (CEPA) did not approve the tender bases because they argue that they have new data that validate their ability to manage this asset directly.
