The Chinchero International Airport – whose construction through the Public Private Partnership (PPP) with the Kuntur Wasi consortium ended three years after the concession contract was signed – will now be a public work; announced the minister of transport, Bruno Giuffra, according to El Comercio.
The minister ruled out that this decision would have a great impact on the cost of the construction. “In reality, there is no greater difference in cost than in a PPP. In these cases, there is sometimes a co-financing, but the State was also going to make a significant investment,” he said.
“He said that it is expected to recover part of or all of the investment made because the airport ‘is a perita en dulce’.”, wrote El Comercio. He added that there will be a long list of airport operators interested in participating in this project, which will allow them to establish conditions.
According to Giuffra, the airport will have a construction phase that can take 4 or 5 years. He also believes that it could start operations as soon as 2021.
