International airport sought for San Carlos and vicinity

A legislative commission heard a pitch for an international airport to be built at San Carlos. The Comisión de Gobierno y Administración  is studying a bill that would authorize adding such a project to the priorities of the  Ministerio de Obras Públicas y Transportes.

Mireya Zamora Alvarado, a lawmaker with Liberación Nacional, was the promoter of the project. The area is one of the most important in the national economy because of its agriculture, cattle, industry and tourism, the committee was told.

There also are a number of wildlife refugees and the Arenal Volcano in La Fortuna. The bill is  No. 17.937.

An international airport proposed for Palmar Norte still is in the planning stages.
