Costa Rica $3.5 billion airport scheme ‘from next year’

Friday, June 9, 2017

Costa Rica has announced that work on an international airport will begin next year, and will be financed by the private sector as the government does not have enough money to pay the expected pricetag of $3.5 billion.

Carlos Villalta, the minister for public works, said the first stage of the work would be complete by 2027, and would be located in Orotina, a canton some 60 kilometers west of the capital of San José. This would require investment of $1.9 billion, he added.
