Honduras: Palmerola airport

Monday, July 15, 2013

Bids close this month for the construction of Honduras’s new international airport in Palmerola, 80 kilometers north of the capital, Tegucigalpa.

As many as eight companies are expected to compete for the project, which would transform what is currently the José Enrique Soto Cano military base.

Later phases of the project will include tenders for the operation of the airport, and for the purchase of equipment.

Construction alone will cost approximately $107 million, and is expected to generate 11,000 jobs.

For international flights, Palmerola will replace Tocontín, which is located in what is now an urban area of Tegucigalpa, without space for expansion.

For more information, contact Jose Antonio Pineda, general secretary of the Commission for the Promotion of Public-Private Partnerships.
