Chocks away for construction of El Salvador airport logistics hub

The government of El Salvador has already selected a company to build a logistics hub close to San Óscar Arnulfo Romero international airport, which serves the capital San Salvador.

“We will [officially] announce the good news at the appropriate time, but we have signed with the people who will develop the project,” the president of ports and airport authority CEPA, Federico Anliker López, said during an interview broadcast on YouTube. He did not name the company.

This logistics hub, originally announced in 2021, involves the construction of an area of warehouses that will house international companies who can ship their products throughout the region.

“It will be a customs-free zone, a very large tech cluster of almost 500,000m2 where we will have companies like Amazon, Alibaba, etcetera,” said Anliker.

He added that the hub will be located to the east of the current airport to ensure there is sufficient space to build it. The airport itself will also be expanded

“We're thinking about the master plan that we've prepared to expand the airport to the east, where the newest terminal is located …. We will also expand the check-in area because more airlines will start operations, which means more passengers, as well as expanding the parking lot, which is nearing full capacity,” he said.
