Brazilians to Manage Airport in Costa Rica

Grupo CCR, which already owned 49% of Aeris, concessionaire of the Juan Santamaría airport, has now acquired 97% of this firm and will be in charge of the management of the air terminal.

Friday, June 8, 2018 reports that "... The control that the CCR Group will now have at the airport will not harm the running of the air terminal. This means that neither the airlines nor the companies that currently work on the property will be negatively affected in any way, according to Rafael Mencía, Aeris' executive director."

"... Although the purchase of the CCR Group means that it now owns almost all of the company Aeris, concessionaire until May 2026 of Juan Santamaría, the management of the latter company, does not foresee significant changes to the running of the terminal."

Other airports in which Grupo CCR has an interest are the Quito International Airport in Ecuador and the International Airport in Curaçao.  In Brazil, with the concessionaire BH Airport, they manage the Belo Horizonte air terminal in Minas Gerais.
