Arquitectonica designed a new concourse leading to 21 gates and corresponding jetways, a hotel, a shopping plaza, airline lounges, baggage handling and pick up areas, and oversaw the renovation and upgrade of the existing terminal at the Jorge Chavez International Airport in Lima. The project required the interaction of existing elements with new ones and the planning for a new public parking garage structure.
Jorge Chávez International serves 4.5 million passengers each year – a figure that’s expected to double by 2010. To handle the growing traffic and transform the facility into a modern international gateway, Lima Airport Partners plans an ambitious capital improvement program, starting with this new passenger concourse and world-class retail plaza. Future plans also include a new airport hotel and enhancements to air cargo facilities, as well as an additional runway and a new terminal complex. Total investment is expected to exceed a billion dollars.
