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

It is operated by CCR (Companhia de Concessoes Rodoviarias), a Brazilian toll road operator.


The airport was commissioned in 1955, although operations started a few years earlier. In 1974, Infraero started to operate the airport.

In 2010, the government of the state of Goiás, in order to encourage tourism and aviation, reduced the tax on petrol from 15% to 3%.[5] After such a reduction, there was some interest from airlines to build a hub at Santa Genoveva Airport,[6] but operational limitations prevented the immediate implementation of such a plan.

The old passenger terminal was capable of handling 600,000 passengers/year, but in its last few years it had been operating beyond its capacity; in 2015, it handled more than 5 times its capacity. On May 9, 2016, a new passenger terminal located on the opposite side of the old and across the runway was opened. It is capable of handling 6,3 million passengers/year.[7] This new terminal has 32 check-in counters and 8 jetways, apart from the usual amenities such as stores and restaurants.[8]

Previously operated by Infraero, on April 7, 2021, CCR won a 30-year concession to operate the airport.[9]
