Mixed Investment for Airport Modernization Endorsed

The Guatemalan government endorsed the modernization of La Aurora International Airport, which costs about $117 million, through a public-private partnership.

Monday, July 8, 2019

After the consulting firm Deloitte Tetra Tech was hired to prepare feasibility studies, with the aim of establishing contract models that could be applied to modernize the Guatemalan air terminal, it was recommended that a public-private partnership (PPP) is the most efficient way.

In this context, authorities of the Ministry of Communications, Infrastructure and Housing (CIV) informed during the last meeting of the Economic Cabinet (Gabeco), that it has been decided to accept the recommendation of the consulting firm and that the modernization will be done through a PPP.

Hector Recinos, deputy minister of Communications and in charge of the infrastructure desk in Gabeco, explained to Prensalibre.com that "... one of the priorities will be the modernization of ports and airports, in particular the Aurora International Airport (AILA) through the PPP, as well as the fitting out of aerodromes. The PPP is part of the Anadie Law, and in response to the CIV's request to modernize the airport, a public-private partnership will be needed, which determined the study carried out by the consulting firm."

Recinos added that "... now it will correspond to the National Council of Alliances for the Development of Economic Infrastructure (Conadie), to issue the itinerary to follow, which will be to elevate the bases for the participation of the private sector and the interested parties to opt for this investment, as well as the winner of the tender of the contract."

Representatives of the Alliances for the Development of Economic Infrastructure (Anadie) informed that they have received the final version of the study and that report will be presented to the Conadie at the end of this month and the instructions to follow will be known.
