New flooring has been installed in the arrivals hall at Santos Dumont Airport in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Brazilian government group Infraero, which is responsible for operating the main Brazilian commercial airports, invested £393,900 in the project.

The new surfacing was provided by production firm Stone Hill Brazil and covers a total area of 1,005m².

“This is another step that provides improved convenience and welfare of passengers arriving at the Rio Santos Dumont," said Iberê de Oliveira, superintendent of Santos Dumont Airport.

To ensure minimal disruption to the airport and passengers, the new flooring was laid in stages with the first phase completed in September.

For the second phase, the airport constructed a temporary tunnel to redistribute the flow of arriving passengers away from the site works, which finished this week (27 November).
