Infraero awards $82m Gale√£o Airport tender

Brazil's national airport authority Infraero has awarded an $82 million tender to a consortium to revamp Terminal 1 at Rio de Janeiro’s Galeão International Airport.

According to BNamericas, the consortium is made up of four companies including MPE, Consbem, Paulo Octávio and IC Supply Engenharia.

State-owned Infraero said that the consortium was the only bidder in the auction, which took place at the end of December.

Work is due to start in April and the 20-month project should be completed by December 2013.

Galeão Airport, which is the city’s largest gateway, handled 12.2mppa in 2010.

Brazil is in the process of privatising a number of its airports in time for the 2014 FIFA World Cup and 2016 Olympic Games.

Just last month the government announced the terms and conditions for the auction of the international airports of Guarulhos, Campinas and Brasília.

Open to both the Brazilian and international private sectors, the public auction for all three airports will be held simultaneously on February 6 at the São Paulo Stock Exchange.

The bidding prices will begin at $1.84 billion for Guarulhos; $812 million for Campinas; and $315.2 million for Brasília.

And the terms of the concessions are 20 years for Guarulhos; 30 years for Campinas; and 25 years for Brasilia.
