Munich Airport subsidiary wins cargo concession in El Salvador

Munich Airport International (MAI), the international management and consulting arm of Munich Airport, is to expand its influence to Central America by developing and operating a new cargo terminal at San Salvador’s El Salvador International Airport.

MAI, part of the SOF Connect consortium which this summer signed finalised the concession agreement to operate and develop Sofia Airport in Bulgaria, has signed a 40-year concession to build and grow the El Salvador Airport Cargo Terminal at the El Savadorian gateway.

Its partner in the project will be EMCO, a Honduran construction company, according to the government of El Salvador, which made the announcement through the Comisión Ejecutiva Portuaria Autónoma (CEPA).

As partner to EMCO, MAI will provide management and advisory services for the cargo terminal during all stages of its development.

Specifically, says MAI, these include asset transition and takeover, operations management, service level and standard procedures setup and implementation, cargo business development, cargo related trainings as well as expertise across various areas of airport development and management, to ensure that productivity and efficiency levels are maximised.

MAI notes: “With the announcement of CEPA, the project is now entering into a new phase and EMCO and MAI are actively working and mobilising the teams for a successful future of El Salvador’s Air Cargo Development”.


Its managing director, Dr Ralf Gaffal, says: “We are honoured to be part of this exciting project with our partner company EMCO. We will work closely with all stakeholders to implement our best practices to develop and enhance the cargo business and its positive impact to the country of El Salvador.”

Elsewhere in the world, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) has reached agreement with MAI to operate and maintain the USD 2.7 billion Terminal One now under construction at Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR).

EWR Terminal One LLC, a 100% owned subsidiary of MAI, will oversee operations, maintenance and concession functions once the terminal’s completed.

Terminal One is replacing the outmoded Terminal A and is scheduled to be fully operational by 2022. The operator also will be making short-term customer enhancements in Terminal A until that terminal is closed.
