The launch of the IBAS – International Brazil Air Show 2019 was also announced at the same event. With the opening of GATGRU, São Paulo International Airport (GRU Airport) will offer a differentiated infrastructure to receive passengers of aircraft and jets of various sizes, following the trend of the largest airports in the world. During the event, held at GATGRU, it was also announced the launch of the University of Air – UniAr Project, an initiative of CFLY.
The initiative, promoted by CFLY, Sator and GRU Airport, brought together authorities, representatives of entities and companies and was attended by the Minister of Infrastructure, Tarcísio Gomes de Freitas (through the display of a video); the new civil aviation secretary of the Ministry of Infrastructure, Ronei Glanzmann, who addressed the new government guidelines for the segment; the director of the National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC), Ricardo Bezerra; the Director General of the Department of Airspace Control (DECEA), Lieutenant-Brigadeiro Domingues; and the mayor of Guarulhos, Guti.

With patio capacity for up to 39 executive jets distributed over an area of more than 6.000m2, GATGRU has a capacity for 200 passengers per hour, which will count with differentiated services. GAT is aimed at passenger processing of General Aviation.
According to Francisco Lyra, partner-director of CFLY, General Aviation is a complement to the Regular Aviation in the country, as it manages the air transportation service to more than 623 destinations against the 153 served by Regular Aviation, being a contributing factor for the economic development and meeting the needs of the air transportation of a continental country like Brazil. In this context, GATGRU contributes to raising the level of services provided to passengers and crew, being the first terminal in the country to maintain international standards of these services, becoming a gateway to Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). FDI, whose main feature is the visit of the main investment decision maker, is considered as a way of integrating world economies.
IBAS – International Brazil Air Show 2019 Launch
The first Brazilian event based on the international aerospace industry and airport infrastructure will be held on September 11, 12 and 13, 2019, at the GRU Airport – São Paulo International Airport, and will bring together leaders from the global air segment to discuss the development in Latin America. The event, sponsored by the Brazilian Air Force (FAB), the National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) and the Brazilian Airlines Association (ABEAR), is sponsored by Sator and co-sponsored by GRU Airport.
With a fundamental contribution to the economy, the air transport sector is responsible for 1.4% of the Brazilian GDP, or R$ 25.1 billion, according to data from the International Air Transport Association (IATA). “Brazil alone accounts for 5% of the world business aviation market, with Latin America accounting for 7% overall. The total number of jobs in Brazil in 2014 is estimated at 1.6 million, plus direct, indirect and aviation-induced jobs and related sectors such as airports, land and aerospace services, as well as tourism. In this sense, initiatives such as the IBAS, GATGRU and UniA further strengthen this sector considered to be of prime importance for the development and economic expansion of Brazil, “says Paula Faria, executive director of Sator and the founder of IBAS.
