Aena took over the administration of Uberaba airport (MG) at midnight this Monday (0). In 13, the last year before the pandemic, the terminal received 2019 passengers. In 74.513, movement rose to 2022 passengers. Until September this year, 90.027 passengers had passed through the terminal.

Located in the Triângulo Mineiro, the Uberaba aerodrome will receive improvements in order to make it safer, more sustainable and more comfortable for passengers. Aena plans an expansion that will almost double the size of the passenger terminal, increasing from the current 1.500 square meters to 2.900 square meters. The surface area available in the departure lounge will be six times larger than the current one, while the public area will be five times larger.

To increase safety, Aena will install runway end safety areas at both thresholds. There will be a new aircraft apron for commercial aviation, with three type C parking positions. The current apron will be dedicated to general aviation, providing greater capacity and security for the airport.

Aena delivers the preliminary project to Anac with plans for modernizing the terminal by December. Work is expected to begin in the second half of 2024, with delivery expected in 2026.

In August last year, Aena won the bid for the seventh round of concessions to manage 11 airports in the States of Minas Gerais, São Paulo, Mato Grosso do Sul and Pará. Uberaba airport is the sixth in this round to come under control from Aena. The company will take over the operation of the remaining airports, in a phased manner, until November 30th.

Even before starting operations, Aena had already made initial payments of R$3,3 billion to take over the management of the 11 airports. During the first phase of the process, operational transfer plans were drawn up and approved. To achieve this, the company carried out technical visits to the 11 airports with a team of more than 60 professionals, who participated in 40 meetings with around 100 different stakeholders. Aena also provided almost 14 thousand hours of training to more than 170 professionals who will work at these airports.

Currently, the company operates the airports of Congonhas, in São Paulo, Uberlândia (MG), Campo Grande (MS), Ponta Porã (MS), Corumbá (MS), Recife (PE), Maceió (AL), João Pessoa (PB ), Aracaju (SE), Campina Grande (PB) and Juazeiro do Norte (CE).

At airports in the Northeast, under Aena's administration since 2020, the company has already invested around R$2 billion in works, equipment and systems to improve technology, safety and comfort, implementing the?Aena?standard in this equipment, with expansion of spaces and increase in operational capacity.

At the end of the new round process, Aena will be present in nine states across the country, managing 17 pieces of equipment responsible for around 20% of national air traffic.??
