Most important aerospace event in the country to discuss airport concession
Under the theme Connectivity and innovation for the strengthening of air transport in Latin America, the 2nd Edition of IBAS – International Brazil Air Show will take place at Gru Airport on September 11, 12 and 13, 2019. Among the themes of the event, concession of airports will be widely debated.
In the first 6 months of 2019, 23 concessions (airports, ports and railways) were made in Brazil, and in March, 12 airports (5th round) were auctioned in three blocks, with a premium of over 900%. and total revenue forecast of R$ 4.2 billion to the Federal Government over the 30 years of concession. The result, which drives the economy and especially the generation of jobs, indicates the recognition of foreign investors in the business opportunities that the country offers in this sector. To address this issue and the development of the sector in Latin America, the 2nd Edition of IBAS – International Brazil Air Show, which will be held on September 11, 12 and 13, 2019, at GRU Airport – São Paulo International Airport, it will bring together leaders of the global airline segment, highlighting the fundamental contribution of the segment to the country’s economy.
Biggest aviation market in Latin America, Brazil has been undergoing intense transformation since 2011 through airport concessions. So far, according to data from the National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC), five rounds have been held, where 22 airports – representing 57% of regular traffic in the country, have been granted to the private initiative, and in general, sixteen groups participated in the auctions and currently eight different operators operate at Brazilian airports. From a total of R$ 33 billion of the planned investment, more than R$ 17 billion has already been made. Investments have increased airport capacity and improved service delivery. “The Agency remains focused on fulfilling the contracts and improving new rounds, always ensuring the best expansion of infrastructure and quality services to passengers,” argues ANAC CEO José Ricardo Botelho, who will speak at IBAS 19.
And by 2022, according to the Ministry of Infrastructure, more than 40 new airports will be granted to the private sector, 22 of which are under study, will make up the 6th round and are already qualified by the Investment Partnership Program (PPI), with forecast of investments of R$ 5 billion, which make up the Blocks: South (9) – Curitiba (PR), Bacacheri (PR), Foz do Iguaçu (PR), Londrina (PR), Joinville (SC), Navegantes (SC), Pelotas (RS), Bagé (RS) and Uruguaiana (RS); North 1 (7): Manaus (AM), Boa Vista (RR), Porto Velho (RO), Tefé (AM), Tabatinga (AM), Rio Branco (AC) and Cruzeiro do Sul (AC); and Central (6): Goiânia (GO), Palmas (TO), São Luís (MA), Teresina (PI), Imperatriz (MA) and Petrolina (PE).
Speaker at IBAS – International Brazil Air Show, the National Secretary of Civil Aviation of the Ministry of Infrastructure, Ronei Glanzmann, highlights the importance of investments in airport infrastructure to leverage the economy of the country. “A revolution in the aviation sector is happening in Brazil. We are living an important turning point. In the coming years, the market will undergo major transformations, with the emergence of new opportunities and business models. There are several foreign eye companies in Brazil. We are investing in the improvement of airport infrastructure, regional aviation and, with the opening of the market to foreign capital, we will have the arrival of new companies, especially low costs, opening new routes, increasing the availability of seats and contributing to lower prices of air tickets”, said Glanzmann.
