passengers in 2023
square meters of new terminal area since 2020
runway extensions in 2022
Airina Ribas, Program Manager Landside/Infrastructure, Porto Alegre Airport

"It’s gratifying to see how fast things happened and how awesome the results are. We had very strict deadlines, but there was no issue we couldn’t handle. We doubled the size of the POA Terminal to 72.000 square meters, added check-in counters, new baggage carrousels, implemented the latest technology to optimize our operational processes, built a new parking garage and brought up the service level to international standards. IPOA is a completely modern airport today!”


Francisco Wagner da Silva, Mechanical Systems Maintenance Coordinator, Fortaleza Airport

"We started the works to expand the Terminal, then we found out it was not possible to access a specific area due to a judicial issue between the former operator and its construction company. We’ll never forget an audience which took place at Fortaleza Airport to help to solve the stalemate. Fortunately, all went well. Today we offer to our passengers a very modern and client-focused Terminal which has doubled its size.”

Diogenes Luciano Sartor, Airside Infrastructure Program Manager, Porto Alegre Airport

"Daily opertations dyed the runway works at Porto Alegre Airport. A huge drainage system was built, and to expand the runway we had to resettle around 1,200 families. It was a long but fast journey. The path was full of stones. Nevertheless, the outcome is astonishing. We delivered works ahead of time and below budget!”

Pedro Navega, Aviation Manager, Porto Alegre Airport

"In June 2023, Chile’s Sky Airline launched services between Santiago and Porto Alegre , following important negotiations to attract a new airline to our airport. The low-cost company started flights three times a week. We are proud of this new achievement, especially for those who are snow sports lovers, since Valle Nevado and Portillo are great options for the winter season.”

Márcio Vasconcelos, Civil Systems Maintenance Coordinator, Fortaleza Airport

"Strict deadlines and a lot of human commitment were the trademark of the runway works at Fortaleza Airport. We could fulfill the requirements of the regulator and finished right before the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic. Our runway was extended to 2,755 meters, but the celebration took place only two years later due to the pandemic. We are a committed team who never gave up and has always done our best, even on the most uncertain days!”


Fabricio Cardoso de Lima – Director of Operations, Porto Alegre Airport

"Since we took over operations at Porto Alegre Airport, we continue working to provide the best quality of services to our passengers. Winning the ‘Aviação + Brasil 2023 Award’ in the “General Satisfaction category for airports with 5 to 10 million passengers a year’ means a lot to us. Our customers take part in the monthly survey conducted by the SAC (National Civil Aviation Secretary) and evaluate us according to their level of satisfaction. We are the number 1!”

Thais Reder, Director of Operations, Fortaleza Airport

"We have won the ‘Aeroportos Sustentáveis Award’ of ANAC (National Civil Aviation Agency) for our sustainability achievements for the third time in 2022. During this path, we’ve learned a lot and implemented several sustainable initiatives at Fortaleza Airport. Being the third placed in the category ‘Airports with over 5 million passengers a year’ shows how much we enhanced our performance. The recognition is a reason for great joy for all of us.”
