In August 2014, Rio Galeão assumed the operation of the Antônio Carlos Jobim International Airport, with the commitment to improve the experience of the 17 million passengers that pass through its installations each year.
The concessionaire is formed by Odebrecht TransPort, Infraero and Changi Airports International, a company of Singapore's Changi Airport Group, which has operated the Changi Airport since 1981, an airport that received some 50 million passengers in 2013 and it was considered the world's best in 2014.
Even before assuming the airport management, the company concluded the first interventions, including the revitalization of the signs and lighting in the two terminals and the installation of energy outlets in the departure lounges. In 2014, there will be improvements in the bathrooms, installation of new surveillance cameras in the parking lots, high speed Internet, assistance for passengers in both Portuguese and English, new food options and the replacement of damaged screens, gutters and floors, among others.
Until 2016, some R$ 2 billion will be invested in the construction of 26 new boarding bridges and 68 new check-in counters. The area dedicated to the airfield at the two terminals will be increased by 80%. With 97 parking points, the airline companies will find it much easier to access and maintain their aircraft at the airport. Rio Galeão will also expand the parking lot, which will begin working with intelligent and automated systems to increase the number of spots by 2,100. A total of R$ 5 billion will be invested by the end of the concession.
The entire structure will be revised, including the elevators, stairs and escalators, bathrooms, floors, lining, first aid system and curbside garbage collection.
