Costa Rica unveils $3.5 billion plan for new airport

Thursday, June 1, 2017

The construction of Costa Rica’s new metropolitan airport will begin next year and a first stage will be fully operational by 2027, Carlos Villalta, the Public Works and Transport Minister announced.

The $3.5 billion project will be built in the Alajuela canton of Orotina, some 60 kilometers from San José. The project will be financed through a public-private alliance, as the government does not have the required resources to build it, Villalta said.

“A first stage of the project will be ready in 2027 with an investment of $1.9 billion. The fourth and final stage should be completed by 2047,” he added.
