Daniel Oduber airport's US$35mn expansion on schedule for end-April (Costa Rica)

Costa Rican President Laura Chinchilla has completed an inspection tour of expansion work at Daniel Oduber international airport in western Guanacaste province's capital city, Liberia.

Concessionaire Coriport expects to begin roofing and detail work on the new two-storey, 23,000m2 passenger terminal in April, according to a presidential release.

The project is costing some US$35mn and will allow the airport to handle 1,500 passengers per hour. Construction is currently on schedule, Chinchilla was reported as saying by paper La Nación.

Tourism minister Carlos Ricardo Benavides is negotiating with several airlines to begin service at the new terminal, which is scheduled to be completed by end-April.

Coriport is comprised of Canada's MMM Aviation Group, US firm Houston Airport Systems, and Costa Rican companies Emperador Pez Espada, Brad & Tod Corporation and Cocobolo Inversiones. The group was awarded the 20-year concession in June 2009.
