The first Brazilian event based on the international aerospace industry and airport infrastructure will be held on September 11, 12 and 13, 2019, at 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 Association of Airline Companies (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 the most important for the development and economic expansion of Brazil, “says Paula Faria, executive director of Sator and the founder of IBAS – International Brazil Air Show.
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. The GAT is aimed at passenger processing of General Aviation.
According to Francisco Lyra, managing partner 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.
