HAVANA._ The plans of Cuba’s Ministry of Transport (MITRANS) to modernize airport facilities will start with extension works on Terminal 3 at Havana’s Jose Martí International Airport.
The project, which is expected to take 3 years to complete, will soon be undertaken by the Brazilian Odebrecht company and will increase the airport’s capacity to between 3 and 4 million passengers per year.
Eduardo Rodriguez, Deputy Development Minister at MITRANS, told the press that this project forms part of a modernization plan targeting main airports as well as the nationwide technological equipment aiming to deliver enhanced customer services.
These plans are in line with the Ministry’s ongoing air transport development policy which, among other aspects, includes the purchase of new passenger and freight planes.
The deputy minister also referred to the list of opportunities that MITRANS is offering foreign investors which will facilitate harbor infrastructure development, the construction and repair of ships in the dockyards, as well as the purchase and/ or the administration of vessels.
With the influx of foreign capital, MITRANS is also working to promote automotive transport exploitation, the manufacturing and repairing of spare parts and accessories, and other commercial railway, aviation and agricultural activities.
Various proposals related to opportunities on the list are being evaluated. They include the creation of joint-ventures in shipyards, wholesales of parts, urban and worker transport base administration, and spare parts manufacturing.Share on FB Share on TT
