Brazil Airports Expansion

The construction of a new regional airport passenger terminal located in the State of Minas Gerais was included in the list of works proposed by the Growth Acceleration Program (PAC) launched by of the federal government in August 2023. The US $30 Million airport plan is expected to be tendered later this year to select an architecture or design company to design the new passenger terminal. The national-level tender will present U.S. companies with good opportunities to partner with local Brazilian firms. 
In addition to the passenger terminal, the airport will require investments in the airport’s runway, runway end safety area (RESA), taxiway, apron, perimeter fence, radar beacon system, lighted wind direction indicators, lighted guidance signs, incinerator, and safety equipment.  According to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) airport classification, the airport is considered a 3C Non-Instrument Flight Rules airport. However, based upon the projected traffic growth and investment requirements that include both the ATR72 and the B737, the airport will move from being classified as Airport Code Reference 3C through 2023 and 4C from 2027 to 2037.
