Guarulhos Airport, in São Paulo, will have an exclusive terminal for passengers traveling in first class and business jets. Under development between GRU Airport, the airport administrator, and operator Jetex, the project has Arab and Canadian investors and will be the first luxury terminal in Latin America.
VIP Terminal at Guarulhos Airport
Some of the differentials for some passengers will be: a transfer service in luxury cars from home or from the hotel directly to the terminal, that is, they will not have contact with the rest of the airport, and exclusive stations for the federal police, the tax authorities and Anvisa. Jetex operates other such terminals around the world that offer meeting rooms, pool tables, gym equipment and even test drives in sports cars.
The new terminal will be built between Terminal 3 of the airport and the hangars of Latam and American Airlines. The project is estimated at 80.6 million US dollars (approximately 415 million reais) and, when ready, it will be the largest in the world with 4,000 m². The VIP terminal is expected to start receiving passengers within two years.
Contacted, GRU Airport limited itself to saying that the project will enter the implementation phase and that more details will be published later.
São Paulo already has an airport for VIP passengers
Few know it, but the state of São Paulo already has a private international airport for high-income travelers, São Paulo Catarina. The differential of the new Guarulhos terminal would be the shortest distance from the capital: 25 km, compared to 74 km from Catarina.
