Airport concessions aim to attract investments to expand and develop Brazilian airport infrastructure, consequently promoting improvements in air transport services. Levels of service quality are based on international standards and provided for in  concession contracts, which are  managed and supervised by ANAC.

The program of concessions in Brazil started in 2011 with Natal (SBSG/NAT) airport. In 2012, Brasília (SBBR/BSB), Guarulhos (SBGR/GRU) and Viracopos (SBKP/VCP) airports were granted, and in 2013, the auction of Galeão (SBGL/GIG) and Confins (SBCF/CNF) airports took place. These concessions intended to improve airport service quality, to speed up the execution of work needed to meet the growing  demand for air transport, and to make the hosting of two major sporting events possible: the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. In 2017, other four airports were granted: Fortaleza (SBFZ/FOR), Salvador (SBSV/SSA), Florianopolis (SBFL/FLN), and Porto Alegre (SBPA/POA).

In August 2017, the federal government announced a new round of concessions and the sale of the 49% equity stake of the Brazilian Airport Infrastructure Company (Infraero) in Brasília, Confins, Galeão and Guarulhos airports. In October of the same year, other 13 airports were included in the national privatization program, which will be granted as regional clusters. The Northeast cluster is formed by the airports of Recife (SBRF/REC), Maceió (SBMO/MCZ), Aracaju (SBAR/AJU), João Pessoa (SBJP/JPA), Campina Grande (SBKG/CPV) and Juazeiro do Norte (SBJU/JDO). The Midwest cluster includes  the concessions of Cuiabá (SBCY/CGB), Sinop (SWSI/OPS), Barra do Garças (SBBW/BPG), Rondonópolis (SWRD/ROO) and Alta Floresta (SBAT/AFL) airports. Finally, the Southeast cluster includes the airports of Vitória (SBVT/VIX) and Macaé (SBME/MEA).
