Vinci takes over the operation of Manaus airport in Brazil – 12/01/2022 at 18:10

(AOF) – Vinci Airports has announced that it has taken over the operation of Manaus airport, under a 30-year concession contract awarded by Brazilian civil aviation in April. Six other airports in the region (Porto Velho, Rio Branco, Boa Vista, Cruzeiro do Sul, Tabatinga and Tefé) will join the Vinci Airports portfolio in February 2022. In total, these seven airports welcomed 7 million passengers in 2019.

Third cargo airport in Brazil, Manaus airport is a pillar of the economic and social development of the Amazon. VINCI Airports will work to develop the cargo activity of this platform by optimizing its operation.

Vinci Airports will also take the opportunity to deploy its environmental action plan in the Amazon. The objective is to reduce the CO2 emissions of airports – notably by building a solar farm – and to improve their water and waste management. Finally, a forest carbon sink program will be implemented there, to sequester their residual CO2 emissions, while helping to protect the Amazon rainforest and biodiversity.

Following the integration of Manaus airport and the six other hubs in the region, Vinci Airports will operate 53 airports around the world, including 8 airports in Brazil. It thus becomes the country’s leading international airport concessionaire in terms of the number of airports managed and employs nearly 500 people.
