Aeropuertos de Peru, the operator of Iquitos Airport in the northeast of the country, has announced the award of its Air-side Upgrade and Maintenance Project (PRMLA) to a consortium headed up by Ineco and the Peruvian engineering company HOB. The project consists of drafting a technical dossier for the airport’s runway, taxiway and apron improvement works. Coronel FAP Francisco Secada Vignetta International Airport is of great strategic importance for the city of Iquitos and its half a million inhabitants because it is located in the middle of the Amazon rainforest and there is no access by land, only by river and air.
