More Commercial Areas in Juan Santamaria Airport

The airport is planning 700 square meters of new retail space, which will include a supermarket and clothing stores.

Thursday, September 26, 2013

The information was released by Rafael Mencia, CEO of Aeris, the company responsible for managing the airport, adding that the new premises will be located in the west of the terminal.

"... an area of ​​about 700 m² can be used for stores, as the corridors will consume 300 m²", reported

These commercial areas will be given in concession to private companies, but the process will take place when the area has almost been built.

"We have always believed that the airport lacks commercial space and there is unmet demand, as the original master plan included very little commercial space for shops," said Pablo Vargas, CEO of Britt, Aeris' main trading partner at the airport.
