The Mariscal Sucre Airport was inaugurated on February 20, 2013 on an area measuring 1,500 hectares. The airport’s runway is 4,100m long and the terminal is 50,000m2. 5.6 million passengers and about 180,000 tons of cargo were mobilized in 2014.
The amount of total traffic has grown on average to 6.7% in the last decade and it is projected that the airport will receive more than 8 million passengers and more than 200,000 tons of cargo by 2020. Based on this, additional investments are planned over the next few years in excess of 100 million dollars.
Odinsa, a partner of the Opain concessionaire that operates the El Dorado Airport in Bogotá, together with CCR, a Brazilian company with extensive experience in the road and airport concessions business, a company that would have the same share as Odinsa in the Mariscal Sucre airport, will form a solid management team for Quito’s Mariscal Sucre airport.
