Peruvian private investment promotion agency ProInversion plans on carrying out the shortlisting process for the concession of southern Cuzco region's Chinchero international airport during 3Q11, project manager Bruno Leoni told BNamericas.
According to the project's preliminary schedule, companies interested in the concession will be requested to submit information regarding their organization on August 5, Leoni said.
The final version of the concession contract is slated to be released during 2Q11, while the shortlisted companies are expected to be announced on September 13.
The project will require an investment of over US$350mn, which includes financing, building, operating and maintaining the new facility. The concession has been set for a 30-year renewable term, with a limit of 60 years, BNamericas reported previously.
The airport will be built in Urubamba province's Chinchero district, some 28km from regional capital Cuzco. It will replace Cuzco's existing Alejandro Velasco Astete terminal, which is operated by civil aviation authority Corpac.
