Lima Airport Partners (LAP), owner of a concession to operate Lima's Jorge Chavez International Airport (LIM) since 2001, has selected FCC Construction, Salini Impregilo, and AECOM as the winning team to implement a major expansion project at the airport. The selection process lasted around nine months.

The project includes the construction of a second runway and a passenger terminal. The airport will eventually cover nine million square metres - rather than the current two million – and be able to serve 30 million passengers a year. The design-build contract is thought to be worth US$1.5 billion.

With the design and build team now selected, LAP will evaluate starting early works focusing on environmental remediation, topographic and geotechnical services, etc. Since the signing of the 7th Addendum, the consortium has already been working on the initial stage of the project. This includes field studies, concept engineering, environmental impact studies, and the financing process. 

Since the start of the LAP concession in 2001, Lima Airport Partners, which is controlled by German airport operator Fraport, has invested more than US$400 million in the airport's infrastructure.  This includes an extra US$70 million that LAP had to invest in existing facilities as a result of delays in the delivery of the lands required for the expansion program.
