Nuevo Pudahuel Consortium comprising Aeroports de Paris (45%), VINCI Airports (40%) and Astaldi Concessioni SpA (15%), will build and manage ''Arturo Merino Benitez'' International Airport in Santiago de Chile, the 6th largest airport in South America, using the concession formula.

The aim of the upgrading and extension project is to increase the airport's capacity from 15 to 30 million passengers per year, with an expansion potential of up to 45 million.

Works involve renovation of Terminal 1 (119,000 m2), currently in use, and construction from scratch of Terminal 2 (175,000 m2) which will be completely dedicated to international flights. Construction of the new terminal also includes the creation of commercial areas, VIP lounges, and the increase of boarding bridges from 18 to 55.

Works also include the construction of 7,800 parking spaces distributed over two three-storey parks and a ground-level car park.

The logistics, aircraft movement and baggage handling systems will also be modernised. Body-scanner technologies will be installed and all the systems and plants (such as water and electricity networks, water treatment) will be upgraded as needed for the airport to function correctly.

The contract also includes commercial management and development of the main areas and services for a period of 20 years.
