Spain's Ferrovial announced (25-Feb-2013) plans to participate in the privatisation of Rio de Janeiro Galeão International Airport and Belo Horizonte Tancredo Neves International Airport through subsidiary Ferrovial Airport. CEO Jorge Gil stated, "In managing airports around the world, we have demonstrated our commitment to modernising terminals with the goal of improving services for airlines and enhancing the passenger experience. This enables airports to enhance their connections and drives growth in the local economies. We consider we have a lot to offer ANAC and Brazil, a country in which we are very interested." As previously reported by CAPA, the airport concessions are expected to be auctioned in Sep-2013. [more - original PR - Spanish]
