Rio, Belo Horizonte Airports to Be Auctioned in 2013, Globo Says

November 17, 2012

The auctions for the concessions on the international airports in Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte, Brazil, will not be held until next year, O Globo reported, citing unidentified government officials.

There is no longer time this year to finish preparing the announcement and winning the necessary regulatory approvals, the Rio de Janeiro-based newspaper said on its website. The auctions for the Rio and Belo Horizonte airports, known as Galeao and Confins, respectively, will probably held in March or April, with President Dilma Rousseff announcing the date in December, O Globo said.

Local pension funds are expected to form partnerships with foreign airport operators, including Fraport AG, Changi Airport Group and Airports Company South Africa, according to the paper.
