In February 2012, an auction was held to transfer the management of the Juscelino Kubitschek Airport to the private initiative.

Forty-five per cent of the construction works – which were budgeted in R$ 5.5 million and are expected to be finalised by October - had been concluded in June. The second Operational Module, which received R$ 7 million in investments, was concluded in June and is already in operation.
