Flughafen Zürich announced (18-Jun-2012) it was awarded the concession for extension and operation of Iquique Cavancha Airport in Chile through the A-Port Chile joint venture. With the handover in Jan-2013, A-Port Chile will be responsible for the extension and operation of the airport for a period of four years. With 1.1 million passengers p/a, Iquique is currently the third largest airport in Chile. Due the high growth rates in the past few years (28% in 2011), a major expansion of the airport is planned for 2017. In light of this, the current tender was designed as a transition concession and will allow the authorities to prepare a comprehensive reference project for the next expansion phase. Flughafen Zürich is involved in the operation of 11 airports in India and Latin America and concentrates on management contracts of airports in emerging markets such as Latin America, Eastern Europe and Southeast Asia, as well as in close collaboration with strong local partners.
