Vertiport hub to be built by late 2023 and ready for eVTOL operations by 2026.

VPorts and Air Traffic Management Inc. (VPorts) has been selected to build and operate a vertiport hub at Aeroporto Internacional de São Paulo (GRU) as part of a 40-year concession agreement signed with airport authorities regarding the construction of a private terminal on its premises. The new 5,100 square metre building, which will be located on the site of GRU São Paulo Airport, will open at the end of 2023, offering thousands of people an exclusive and unique travel experience.

The new GRU private terminal will include the vertiport hub, which will be ready to enter into service as urban air travel vehicles take flight in the coming years. By 2026, eVTOLs and air taxis will be connecting Guarulhos to other areas in São Paulo. The private terminal is currently being built with this next-gen safe, sustainable, and integrated air mobility vision in mind. Over 100,000 passengers per year are expected to use the terminal by 2045.
