- Lima Airport Partners (LAP), operator of the Jorge Chávez International Airport, generates opportunities for women in less widespread sectors in the country, such as the aeronautical and construction sectors.
- Currently, LAP has 46% women in management positions.
Lima, March 2, 2023.- As part of the celebration of Women’s Day, Lima Airport Partners (LAP) and the Ministry of Women and Vulnerable Populations (MIMP), publicly recognized five outstanding workers from the airport community that are involved in the operation and construction of the future Jorge Chávez International Airport.
Within the framework of the campaign “Protagonists for equality” #TheyFlyHigh, the Vice Minister of Vulnerable Populations, Elba Espinoza, valued the work of all the women who day by day strengthen the infrastructure sector, the airport community and construction works in Peru. “Women who, with their intelligence and hard work, have been placing each pillar of the future Jorge Chávez International Airport that will connect Peru with the world. Their work is remarkable and motivates girls, adolescents, and women in general, to also project their dreams and be encouraged to carry out activities that contribute to the development of the country,” he said.
Lima Airport Partners (LAP) and the Inti Punku Consortium, formed by Sacyr Peru and Cumbra, who are building the new airport passenger terminal, began the first construction works in 2019, generating more than 15,000 direct and indirect jobs.
“Today, 40% of the workers of the LAP Expansion Project are women, the same ones who day by day are making LAP’s legacy to Peru a reality by delivering this important mega infrastructure. In the case of the operation last year, the first female Jorge Chávez aeronautical firefighter joined the LAP Rescue team. Likewise, 3 of the 4 airport managers are women, among other important positions”, highlighted Milagros Paredes, Central Manager of Development and Sustainability of LAP.
More than 100 women from the airport community gathered at the front of the new passenger terminal next to the Vice Minister of Women and Vulnerable Populations, raising their voices and demonstrating the importance of their roles in the sector.
Throughout the month of March, LAP has been preparing a series of activities to commemorate International Women’s Day and celebrate the important role of women in the airport ecosystem of our main air terminal in the country.
