Frontrunner for Chile airport P3

19 May 2017 A frontrunner has emerged for the concession of the Diego Aracena de Iquique airport in Chile.

The city of Iquique has received three economic bids for the delivery of the Diego Aracena de Iquique airport.  

The best bid has been submitted by Consorcio Aeropuertos Asociados, which is 35% below the maximum established in the bidding documents. The consortium is comprised of A Port Chile and Zurich Airport Latin America.   

Other bidders, shortlisted in April, are Sacyr Concesiones in alliance with Agunsa. The Belfi-Icafal consortium has been already disqualified because it didn’t comply with the requirements.   

The $64m project will run under a 25-year concession expected to be completed by 2021. Works will involve the expansion and improvement of the terminal passenger building, which includes two new boarding bridges and commercial areas.   

Other works include expansion of the public parking area and improvement of lighting, parking lots for officials, pedestrian areas and airport security, among other works.
