Belo Horizonte/Confins - Tancredo Neves International Airport
Belo Horizonte/Confins – Tancredo Neves International Airport, formerly called Confins International Airport is the primary international airport serving Belo Horizonte. Since 2 September 1986 the airport is named after Tancredo de Almeida Neves, President-elect of Brazil.
The history of Tancredo Neves International Airport begins in the 1970s. At the time, the mining capital relied solely on Pampulha Airport, built in 1933 and already operating with operational limitations. The demand for a world-class airport led the Ministry of Aeronautics, in partnership with the State Government, to initiate technical feasibility studies for the construction of the “Belo Horizonte Metropolitan Airport”.
The conclusion of the studies indicated an area located in the municipalities of Lagoa Santa / Confins, as the most recommended to receive the new venture due to exceptional weather and topographic conditions.
