On May 19, 2023, the Swiss group Zurich Airport won the public bid to operate Natal Airport (RN), in the northeast of Brazil. The airport handled approximately 2,3 million passengers in 2022.

With the concession contract, Zurich Airport owns 100% of the airport - which currently has a capacity for around 6,5 million passengers a year - and will operate it for a period of 30 years. The concession contract provides for a payment of R$ 320 million. In addition, Zurich Airport will pay an annual revenue-based fee from the fifth anniversary of the concession agreement's signature. The transfer of operational responsibility is scheduled for early 2024.

The airport in the capital of Rio Grande do Norte, complements Zurich Airport's portfolio in Brazil – consisting of the concession of 100% of the airports in Florianópolis, Vitória and Macaé and a stake in the airport of Confins - Belo Horizonte.

With the new concession and the existing ones, Zurich Airport will be able to contribute to the growth of the Brazilian aviation market and will implement Swiss expertise in airport operations, maintaining local values, as is already the case at the group's airports in Brazil
