Mott MacDonald to create masterplan for Costa Rica’s new airport

Engineering consultancy Mott MacDonald has been contracted to create a masterplan for a new international airport in Costa Rica on behalf of air navigation provider Central American Corporation of Air Navigation Services (COCESNA).

The new airport in Alajuela is scheduled for completion in 2026 as part of a modernization program to grow air transport in the country. The project consists of technical, environmental and financial advisory services, as well as airport development planning including traffic forecasting, infrastructure layout and terminal design. At the end of the 12-month project, Mott MacDonald will provide COCESNA with the infrastructure plans and associated financial requirements to develop the new airport.

Horacio Rossi, project director, Mott MacDonald, said, “The new airport will be a significant development for Costa Rica and will support economic growth in the region. The additional capacity will enable an increase of international flights, benefitting both export and tourism.

“Our experience consulting on Mariscal Sucre International Airport (Ecuador) gave us specific expertise in developing new airports on greenfield sites, as well as relocating a country’s main airport due to existing site expansion constraints. We are delighted to lead an integrated team on this project, which includes FSA, Enroute and Gensler.”
