Lima Airport Partners (LAP), operator of the Jorge Chávez International Airport (LIM) in Lima, Perú, has announced it is investing US$1.6 billion to increase the hub's infrastructure, build a new Terminal 2 and a new airport traffic control tower. It will also upgrade the current Terminal 1, among other initiatives. Nonetheless, not everyone is happy, and the Peruvian airline industry has released a statement on the subject.

According to the airport operator, once the works are complete, the hub will have a new traffic control tower, two runways, and two terminals, and will be able to handle up to 37 million passengers per year.

The new control tower and second runway are expected to be delivered in July 2022, while the new Terminal will be finished by 2025.
