Egis will support the new concessionaire XP Asset Management (XP) with running the two main business airports in Brazil, when XP takes over from Infraero, the public operator, in 2023. Jacarepaguá Airport in Rio de Janeiro and Campo de Marte in São Paulo are dedicated to business and general aviation, with ca. 130,000 movements per annum between them and substantial helicopter operations.
The Egis proposition draws on its extensive experience as a partner and airport operator in more than 18 other airports around the world, its local presence in Brazil for more than 40 years, and its track record as a top ten Engineering Consulting company there.
The shared vision for the two airports focuses on sustainability, resilience, and the opportunities presented by near future urban air mobility developments such as eVTOL aircraft, where Brazil is among the most advanced countries to see this new transport mode emerge.
The first phase of Egis activity will concentrate on:
- Coordinating operations and resources – from infrastructure to staff
- Improving airport efficiency and service quality
- Ensuring safety, security and environmental compliance
