Cepa completing feasibility studies for US$80mn airport expansion (El Salvador)
El Salvador's national ports authority (Cepa) has nearly completed feasibility studies for a project to modernize El Salvador's international airport AIES, airport director Yicsi Rodriguez told BNamericas in an email.


The agency is analyzing various financing options for the expansion project, which will cost an estimated US$80mn, Rodriguez added.


Once feasibility studies are complete, Cepa will begin the process to select a firm to complete final designs for the expansion project, which aims to double the airport's capacity to 4mn passengers a year.


Aside from the expansion, Cepa will also carry out repairs on the airport's main 3,200m runway in 2011, which will cost an additional US$10mn.
