Final Award Determined by ICSID

Corporación América Airports S.A.

(“Kuntur Wasi”, in which CAAP holds 50% of the shares) to the competent authority, ICSID (known as CIADI in Spanish), in June 2018, in connection with the unilateral decision of the Government of Peru to terminate the concession agreement for the new Chinchero International Airport.

On May 9, 2024, Kuntur Wasi received notification from the ICSID Arbitral Court of the award (ICSID Case No. ARB/18/27) regarding the arbitration procedure on the case Sociedad Aeroportuaria Kuntur Wasi S.A. and Corporación América S.A. v.
