Cusco’s new airport is one step closer to becoming a reality after Chincheros’ residents agreed to sell their land.
On Sunday residents of Chincheros expressed their full support for the project, and agreed to sell their land at $20 per square meter, as proposed by the regional government, El Diario de Cusco reported.
Previously, Milton Von Hesse, executive director of ProInversion, said work at Cusco’s Chinchero international airport could begin in 2013.
A Korean delegation recently visited the site, and carried out technical evaluations in Anta, measuring wind speeds, runway dimensions and soil density. According to El Diario de Cusco, the Korean government expressed it remained willing to establish a joint venture in the construction of Cusco’s new airport.
Late last year, Korea’s ambassador to Peru Park Hee-kwon also highlighted his country’s interest in investing in the new airport.
“Peru has been Korea's most important partner in Latin America… [the country] has great potential for growth. That's why we want to invest here,” he said.
