Offers are due to be presented on March 3 and ProInversión plans to announce a winner on March 7, state news agency Andina reported.
The awardee will be responsible for identifying the investment required for equipment and construction of the airport, performing a financial analysis of the concession and evaluating technical bids and concession documents.
