Work begins on construction of Palmerola International Airport in Honduras

Groundwork began yesterday (February 6) on the construction of a new greenfield international airport in Honduras, located in the city of Comayagua.

Palmerola International Airport will be built at a cost of approximately US$163m and is scheduled for completion by mid-2018. The airport will eventually replace Toncontín International Airport, which over the years has witnessed some of the worst air disasters in Latin American history.

The construction is predicted to generate 7,000 direct new jobs, while benefiting more than 30,000 people, namely in the valley of Comayagua. The airport’s plans include the construction of a control tower, commercial areas, and ample parking, along with seven distinct terminals for both domestic and international travel.

Munich Airport International, the management and consultancy arm of German airport operator Flughafen München, has been providing planning, development and management support services for engineering firm Grupo EMCO regarding the project.

Speaking at the ground breaking ceremony, Honduran president Juan Orlando Hernández said, “It is not just an airport because in the future it can convert this region into a special area of development for the valley, for Honduras, and even the Central American market.”
