The government will auction 12 airports this Friday (15). The auction will be held at B3 headquarters in Sao Paulo at 10 am. This is the fifth auction round of the airport and provides a concession of terminals divided into three blocks: Northeast; Southeast and Central West.
The auction is expected to raise R $ 2.1 billion and create an investment of R $ 3.5 billion during the concession period. According to the National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC), the 12 terminals to be bidded account for 9.5% of domestic air traffic and have about 20 million passengers per year.
By this Friday's auction, almost 70% of Brazil's air traffic will be at private sector operated airports.
In addition to R $ 2.1 billion, the government will collect fixed subsidies to be paid in cash. The minimum subsidy for the three blocks is RM199 million, and you will receive a bid that is larger than the auction price.
This is the first auction is split into blocks. This change has led the government to deficit terminal and terminal surpluses on the same site. The government announced its sixth bid after the auction was expected Friday. The next round is expected to have three blocks and includes 22-24 Infraero airports.

According to Alberto Sogayar, infrastructure partner for L.O.Baptista Advogados, a bigger debate about the Northeast Block is expected. According to him, in addition to the great tourism potential of the region, the terminal will draw the attention of European companies because it is the closest to Europe.
"These airports can serve as bridges to other Latin American airports, and the last port in Europe will be the most competitive and the highest in terms of premiums.
The main tourist attractions in the southeastern block are the oil and gas industry and the Midwest block agriculture related services.
João Santana, an infrastructure project management specialist, said that some of the blocks do not think they will escape competition, but the Southeast and Midwest blocks should not be a big issue.
"If that's the case, it's going to be a little bit of a controversy," he said, "if someone is looking at the potential of the business and the profitability of the asset, the market is not yet visible.
He will be in competition because of the size of the market, as Porto Alegre, who manages the Confins terminal of Belo Horizonte and Fraport of Germany, a conquest of Florianópolis airport, already know the market. company.
In this round, bidding also predicts the sharing risk between the government and the concessionaire winning in the auction. This is because the subsidy value of R $ 2.1 billion (R $) to be paid during the concession period depends on the future concessionaire's total profit.
Therefore, if the movements of the airport collapse, the company will pay a smaller amount to the government and share the risk to the company with the company.
Variable subsidies are calculated based on the total sales of future generators and 8.2% in the northeastern block. Southeast block 8.8%; The Midwest region is 0.2%. The concession period is 30 years.
After a fixed subsidy, at the conclusion of the contract, the new concessionaire will not pay anything for five years, which is the year to demand more investment. The rate of return of the proceeds starts six years after the concession and goes to the end.
