Aerocivil to concession Palestina, Armenia terminals in 2011 (Colombia)
Colombia's aviation authority Aerocivil has decided to modify the Eje Cafetero airport package concession plan to focus on concessioning just two terminals, an official from the entity's project structuring office told BNamericas.


The Palestina and Armenia terminals, located in Caldas and Quindio departments respectively, should be launched for tender during 2011, according to the official, who asked to remain anonymous.


The Eje Cafetero airport package, formerly known as Centro-Occidente, originally involved two other airports: Pereira, located in Risaralda department, and Cartago, in Valle del Cauca.


Aerocivil is working with investment consultancy firm Consorcio Bonus Ferruan TNM to define the project structure and the financial model of the concessions.


The studies will determine the technical and infrastructure improvements required for the two airports, as well as long-term passenger traffic projections and the length of the concession, the official said.
