The government's commitment is to build an airport for cargo in the Pacific coast, near the present Naval Base runway, in Puerto de San Jose, and one for tourists on the Atlantic coast, in the Database air Izabal.
Plans for the construction of the airport of Puerto de San José, Escuintla, are ready, and a partnership with the private sector is being sought to provide the finance of $140 million required for the project.
The Guatemalan government is committed to public-private partnerships that encourage investment in infrastructure.
Eight companies from five countries have shown interest in the tender to build an international airport at the Palmerola military base.
The international airport in the capital of Costa Rica, will be too small to meet the air traffic needs of Costa Rica in the next 10 years.
