Present & future Airport developments: 
 While ABV SA won concession in 2012 - its shareolders decided  in July 2017 to return the concession to the Government - for it to seek new bidders at a new auction.  ABV invested $954M in a new terminal, however, passenger traffic only reached 9.3M (of the 17.9M previously projected). Until the new tender is complete, ABV continues airport operations.  
 - Not all news at the Airport are negative:  Viracopos Campinas Airport has a robust cargo service, for which it received the 'Cargo Excellence Award in April 2017.
 - In the future, the Airport may play a major part in absorbing air traffic from both Guarulhos & Congonhas airports - with gradual flight transfers to Viracopos.  A 5-phase expansion project spread over 30 years involves a US$3.5B investment by operator ABV - extending the Airport precinct from 8.3M  to 25.9M sq.meters, while the passenger terminal is to expand from 20,000  to 178,000 sq.meters.  The first two phases:
- Construction of  Phase 1 is to include a new passenger terminal capable of handling 14M passenger a year; a parking garage, and expanded  taxiways  - no indication yet when to be completed. 
- Construction of Phase 2 is to acommodate 22M passengers.
