Meanwhile, Colombia's government received two economic bids for the 346bn-peso Ernesto Cortissoz airport concession in Barranquilla, transport ministry MinTransporte said in a release.

The bids were submitted by Consortium Aeropuertos Colombia SPV – comprising companies Valorcon, Equipo Universal and Inversiones Millenium Azipo – and Consortium Estructura Plural Pavimentos Colombia y Graña y Montero, comprising Pavimentos Colombia SAS and Graña y Montero (Peru).

Barranquilla's airport currently handles around 2.1mn passengers a year, while the three other airports together handle about 1mn.

The concession plans would allow for a 3.35mn increase in passenger traffic, according to studies from Aertec Solutions.
