Brazil considers allowing majority stake in airport privatisations

Brazil's Government is reportedly set to revise its plans for privatisation of the country's airports to allow partners to take a majority stake in concessions, after a lack of interest from private partners in taking minority stakes, according to a report by Valor Econômico. The Government is also reportedly considering creating an investment arm of airport operator Infraero, to be called Infrapar, which would then hold the minority stakes in privatised airports. The Government is reportedly interested in attracting majority investors to operate Rio de Janeiro-Galeão International Airport and Belo Horizonte Tancredo Neves International Airport.
