“Market Square Consult, as advisor to InterVISTAS Consulting Group, has successfully undertaken the advisory services for the development of a Concession plan for the non-aeronautical (shops, restaurants and passenger service) facilities for the new terminal of Viracopos Airport, Campinas, Brazil for Aeroportos Brasil Viracopos during 2012 and 2013.

The project was handled with adequacy and care and was concluded to our full satisfaction."

“As a result of the retail redevelopment project during 2007-2009, the retail income per passenger has grown with 22 percent. It is noteworthy that average transaction value has increased significantly, while sales in some categories have increased by up to 44 percent as a result of greater penetration due to the improved lay-out.”
