Private Public Partnership to Expand Airport

Through a public-private alliance, Fomilenio plans to make improvements to the cargo terminal at El Salvador's international airport, Monsenor Romero, and in a second phase, to invest $44 million in its expansion.

Wednesday, October 25, 2017

Fomilenio authorities detailed that they have completed the feasibility studies and determined that the first project to be carried out under the figure of Public - Private Alliance is the extension of the cargo terminal at the International Airport Monsignor Óscar Arnulfo Romero y Galdámez. 

William Pleites, CEO of Fomilenio II, explained to Elmundo.sv that "... studies that evaluated the feasibility of executing the project via a PPP recommended two stages. The first is the one to be awarded by the end of 2018.  Valued at $13.4 million, it consists of improving the efficiency of the cargo terminal. Today it has installed capacity for 50,000 to 52,000 metric tons per year, but only mobilizes 27,000."

"... The second phase amounts to $44 million and would be executed depending on demand. It would involve expanding the terminal so that it can mobilize more than 74,000 metric tons per year."
