According to the official information, Brazil is modernizing the infrastructure of its airport sector, promoting the most extended sequence of auctions in its history. It is strategic for Brazil to transfer control of airports to the private sector in order to increase investments and the quality of services.
Brazil is the largest economy in Latin America and its continental size makes aviation essential to bring regions together, connecting from the smallest local communities up to its cosmopolitan State capitals. This is the reason why the country has by far the largest air transport market on the continent. Being an emerging economy, it acknowledges that airport development is instrumental to support the country’s ambitions to expand tourism and global trade.
The 2022 Sustainable Airport Development in Brazil’s three-day mission took place on April 12th–14th, in the cities of São Paulo, Belo Horizonte and Brasília.

This program – in partnership with the Netherlands Aerospace Group (NAG), the trade association for the aerospace and airport industry in the Netherlands, aimed to bring together a group of companies who will engage with the Brazilian market for a further 3-year period with the goal of positioning in this growing market.
