Costa Rica awards contract to French-Spanish consortium to develop master plan for new airport

Following the international tender in which eight companies took part, the company selected to carry out the “Site Study and Master Plan for the New Huetar Norte Airport” is the CEMOSA-ADPI consortium, “Centro de Estudios de Materiales y Control de Obra SA” (CEMOSA) with headquarters in Spain and Aeropuertos de París Ingenierie (ADPI), based in France. The study and design of the new airport is funded with a US$400,000 contribution from the Central American Corporation of Air Navigation Services (COCESNA). Air lift to Costa Rica has been increasing in recent years, including from Europe. The Air France-KLM group announced it will offer a daily flight between Paris and San Jose beginning in October 2018. The Costa Rican Tourism Institute reported that airlines will be able to bring 96,500 additional passengers into the country in 2018 thanks to more frequent services from Europe.
