There will be 22 terminals divided into three blocks that will attract approximately R $ 6 billion in investments
O federal government is prepared to overturn possible injunctions that could halt the auction from airports which will take place on Wednesday, 7. There will be 22 terminals, including those in Curitiba, Manaus and Goiânia, divided into three blocks and which will attract around R $ 6 billion in investments. The National Civil Aviation Secretary, Ronei Glanzmann indicates that the Federal Attorney General (AGU) is on call attentive to all movements. “There is no way we can foresee whether there will be other injunctions or not, but we have our Attorney General’s Office fully prepared to be able to act in each of these instances.”
Even in the midst of greater airport sector crisis worldwide, the sixth round of airport concessions is expected to attract at least seven investors. For the secretary there will be no lack of interest, as it is a long-term contract. “The civil aviation industry, of course, everyone knows that it has been affected by the pandemic crisis. air transport is confined transport and, in times of pandemic, the sector suffers a lot. But we are talking about a long-term concession, it will be 30 years of concession. And we believe that the market is looking at this resumption after the pandemic, after the coronavirus ”, he said.
Large groups that already manage airports in Brazil signal an interest in participating, such as Aena, Vinci, CCR, Inframérica and Socicam, the fund manager Pátria and the French operator ADP can also enter the event. According to the National Civil Aviation Secretariat, the concessions will not impact the tariffs to users, and will follow the current rules. Currently, 67% of all national traffic is granted to the private sector. The government expects to carry out the relicitation of São Gonçalo do Amarante airport in Natal in December. The auction for the 7th round is scheduled for 2022, which includes the so-called crown jewels, Santos Dumont and Congonhas.
