Project Details


The US$40mn project will increase the size of El Loa airport from 2,240m2 to 8,100m2. It also includes the construction of a building for the national airport authority, a control tower and an airplane apron area. In 2011, Chile's public works ministry (MOP) awarded the concession for El Loa airport to local firm Agunsa. It is estimated that the expansion will be completed by late September 2014. El Loa is Chile's third largest airport and, in 2013, 1.4mn passengers used it.
