The Viracopos International Airport is located in an important Brazilian center of scientific, technological and industrial development, the city of Campinas, São Paulo. Known for harboring major university centers, the city has access to the best roads in the country and has a large industrial park in its metropolitan area.
Viracopos is the second largest cargo terminal in Brazil, and passenger transportation has increased significantly in recent years. It is one of the fastest growing airports in the country, and since it was turned over to the private sector, a number of improvements and innovations have been implemented through the Viracopos Brazil Airports concession. The goal is to turn the Viracopos International Airport into the largest and most modern airport in Latin America.
In February of 2012, by means of an auction, the Airports Brazil Consortium won the right to manage the Viracopos airport for 30 years. Formed by the TPI - Triunfo Participações e Investimentos, Participações UTC and French Egis Airport Operation, the consortium, along with Infraero, form the Viracopos Brazil Airports concession.
Following an investment plan, the Master Plan, the Viracopos Brazil Airport foresees an investment of approximately U.S. $ 9.5 billion over the next 30 years of the concession divided into six investment cycles.
