Empresa Brasileira de Infraestrutura Aeroportuária, Infraero in short, is a Brazilian government corporation created in 1970 and responsible for administering the main Brazilian commercial airports. In 2009, Infraero's airports carried 128,135,616 passengers and 1,114,754 tons of cargo and operated 2,290,950 take-offs and landings. It manages 67 airports, which represent 97% of the regular air carriage activity in Brazil, 81 Air Navigation Stations and 32 Cargo Logistics Terminals. Present all over Brazil the company employs approximately 23 thousand effective and subcontracted workers, nationwide.

The company implements a workplan which covers practically all airports managed by it and which generates over 50 thousand jobs all over Brazil. The Brazilian airport infrastructure, which may match to the international standards, is being updated to meet the next years demand.

The works are performed with the company's own revenue, mainly generated by the air cargo storage and custom duty, granting of commercial areas in the airports, boarding, landing and stay tariffs, and rendering of communication and air navigation auxiliary services.

On 9 October 2009, it was announced that Infraero will invest in airports abroad: Infraero was invited by the Government of Paraguay to administrate Silvio Pettirossi International Airport in Asunción and invited to participate in the privatization of Ruzyně Airport in Prague, Czech Republic, among other investments.[1]

On March 4, 2010, the Federal Government of Brazil announced that it would adopt the model of concession to airports. For this reason Infraero would become a concessionary rather than administrator of the airports that it currently operates. The main consequence is the fact that Infraero will be able to open its capital and obtain resources necessary for infra-structure investiments.[2] Another consequence is that municipal or state governments would have it easier to change concessionaries, such as the intention announced on 28 August 2009 by Rosinha Matheus, the Mayor of Campos dos Goytacazes, who requested Infraero the transfer of the administration of Bartolomeu Lysandro Airport to the Municipality. The Minister of Defense, to whom Infraero is subordinate, already anounced being in favor of the transfer.[3]

Future Major Investments

On 31 August 2009 Infraero unveiled an ambitious BRL5.3 billion (USD2.8 billion; EUR2.0 billion) investment plan to upgrade airports of ten cities focusing mainly the preparations for the 2014 FIFA World Cup which will be held in Brazil, and for the 2016 Summer Olympics, which will be held in Rio de Janeiro.[4] Of the twelve cities that will hold venues, ten will receive major investiments.

Other Brazilian Airports

Several major Brazilian airports are not administrated by Infraero. They are mostly civil facilities of relative importance and are under government (public) responsibility. Generally, the municipality of the city where the airport is located or serves is responsible for the funding and maintenance of these airports (or, in rare cases, a private company is given responsibility by the municipality to be responsible for the airport; in this case, any profit stays with the private company). Also, Infraero does not exert any power in private-owned air fields.

Furthermore, Infraero does not have any control or responsibility over Brazilian military bases; they are entirely adminsitrated by the Air Force or Navy Commands of the Brazilian Ministry of Defense.
