Peruvian company IKSA wins cargo contract at Lima Airport

Lima Airport Partners has teamed up with IKSA to develop cargo at Lima's airport

Lima Airport Partners (LAP) has awarded Inmobiliaria Koricancha (IKSA) a contract to design, construct, operate and maintain the South Cargo Zone at Jorge Chavez International Airport in Lima, Peru.

Real estate and logistics company IKSA will work on the project with Cubic33, which specialises in the design and construction of industrial, logistics, and refrigeration projects.

The South Cargo Zone project, part of LAP’s Airport City concept, will include warehouses designed for dedicated air cargo storage and the adjacent, new passenger terminal’s duty-free store merchandise.

Additional warehouses will also be developed for logistical support to meet airport service needs.

The South Cargo Zone is anticipated to complement the existing cargo area located on Av. Faucett.

Its strategic proximity to the new passenger terminal’s commercial flight apron will streamline traffic and turnaround time to improve operational efficiency and safety at the airport, said the airport.

The project comprises two distinct phases. The first phase which encompasses construction, is projected to conclude by the end of the second quarter of 2024.

The second phase involves securing requisite approvals and executing infrastructure enhancements. This collaborative initiative with airport operators is scheduled for the third quarter of 2024.

The goal is to ensure readiness for the testing phase of the new passenger terminal, which is set to commence operations in January 2025, when the operation and maintenance of the new South Cargo Zone will begin, a contract that will last 16 years, until February 2041.

“We are pleased to have selected IKSA as our strategic partner for the development of the new South Cargo Zone,” said Norbert Onkelbach, chief commercial officer at LAP.

“We are ready to move forward hand in hand with LAP on new developments in this iconic Airport City project,” said Edgardo Carbonel, general manager of IKSA, co-owned by the Sandoval business group and AC Capitales.”
