Santa Genoveva/Goiânia Airport (IATA: GYNICAO: SBGO) is the airport serving Goiânia, Brazil.

It is operated by Infraero.

History[edit]

The airport was inaugurated in 1955 although operations started a few years earlier. Since 1974 it is operated by Infraero.

The present passenger terminal is capable of handling 600,000 passengers/year but in the last few years it has been operating beyond its capacity: in 2010 it handled almost 4 times its capacity.

The government of the state of Goiás, in order to encourage tourism and aviation reduced the tax on petrol from 15% to 3%.[4] After such a reduction there was some interest from airlines to build a hub at Santa Genoveva airport[5] but its present operational limitations prevented the immediate implementation of such a plan.

Access[edit]

The airport is located 8 km (5 mi) from downtown Goiânia.

Future developments[edit]

Due the increasing amount of traffic that the airport has been receiving in the last years, Infraero has decided to build a new passenger terminal, with 27,160 square meters and capacity for handling 2,1 passengers/year in its initial phase. Possibility for enlargements has already been considered in the original project.

The new terminal will have 32 check-in counters and 8 jetways, apart from usual amenities such as stores and restaurants.

The first phase of the works are due to be concluded in 2012 and the second phase in 2014.
