11:43 | Lima, May. 12.

Lima Airport Partners (LAP) has invested US$5.355 million in the expansion of services at the capital's Jorge Chavez International Airport, the private operator informed.

This way, LAP seeks to improve services for domestic and international passengers passing through the main Peruvian terminal. 

Works include the expansion of check-in facilities with 16 new desks (8 new double counters).
 
As a result, part of the International Hall will be closed for a two-month period (from May 10 to July 1, approximately.)

In addition, the renovated airport will feature a larger baggage claim area for domestic flights with 2 additional carousels. 

The project will also involve new operational facilities, as well as the revamping of the Domestic Arrivals Hall and commercial area. 

New airlines

"We keep working on enhancing services offered at the [Jorge Chavez] airport," LAP General Manager Juan Jose Salmon affirmed.

"This time, we will make significant improvements in check-in and baggage claim area services to increase our service capacity," he explained. 

Said upgrading works owe to the airport's growing operations following the entry of new airlines and greater passenger flow.
