Infraero works on stimulation of regional aviation by managing regional airports

25 November, 2019

Infraero president Hélio Paes de Barros commented on Brazil's regional aviation development plan, stating: "We are [working in regional aviation stimulation] in Minas Gerais, Santa Catarina and Pernambuco… We have agreements with the state and cities' governments for Infraero take over management of highly unprofitable airports" (Globo, 24-Nov-2019). Mr Barros added: "As soon as the airports become profitable they can be returned to the governments". The governments are responsible for investing on the airports while Infraero outlines the requirements to address the airport's necessities to local demand.
