For a new airport, a lot of studies have to be carried out, the wind studies take about three years, it is a long term project, according to von Breymann.

The minister said “… there is a real need is to improve Liberia’s airport, as we saw in the case of ash from Turrialba volcano, which caused the San Jose airport in Alajuela to be closed … we must take action to expand the Oduber in case of emergencies and in this way cover both arriving flights and departures.”
