Similarly, INERCO provided archaeological supervision services in the drilling of the underground well by rotation, the installation of an AWOSS system and archaeological supervision for the topographical and planimetry surveying of colonial and Inca trails.

The airport infrastructure project will be located29 kilometres north-west of the city of Cusco and will involve investment of approximately $539 US for the beginning of the operations. The contract was awarded to Sociedad Aeroportuaria KunturWasi, made up of the companies Corporación América S.A. and Andino Investment Holding; KunturWasi will hold the concession for 40 years.

The airport will provide passengers with a high level of service, in a 40,000 m2 terminal with an initial capacity for 4.5 million passengers per year, which may grow in accordance with demand up to 5.7 million passengers per year. There will also be international connections with the main cities of the Americas.
