It is expected that the chosen company will deliver the results of study in six months, which will be funded by the US government, through the Millennium Challenge Corporation and the Guatemala Threshold Program, seeking to improve infrastructure and processes at the airport, whose operation will be undertaken by a private company who will recoup their investment by charging for services.

Elperiodico.com.gt reports that "...The consulting firms that are taking part in the selection process are: ALG-AFI Group (Spain); Cemosa-Profit-Duran and Osorio (Spain); PWC Consorcio de ingenieros CSI (Spain, Uruguay); Nathan Associates (US); Felipe Ochoa y Asociados / Louis Berger / Rios Ferrer (Mexico, Panama and Mexico); Copenhagen Airport / Arena (Denmark, Mexico). Deloitte (Guatemala, Spain, USA.); and INECO Cal y Mayor y Asociados / Cal y Mayor Guatemala (Spain, Mexico, Guatemala)."

"...The study will provide the basis for technical, financial, economic, socio environmental, legal and cadastral structuring, to define the mode of how to modernise the AILA (International Airport Aurora), either through a public-private partnership, traditional work plan or concession".
