Salvador Bahia Airport stands out globally for its punctuality

Salvador Bahia Airport, a member of the VINCI Airports network, has been appointed as the third most punctual in the medium-sized airports category, according to the May report by Cirium, a company specialized in data for aviation and airports. During the month, the airport achieved a 97.09% punctuality rate for departures. Landings achieved 95.43% punctuality. A total of 2.122 flights were accounted for, covering 24 routes served by the aerodrome.

According to Antônio Mendes, operations director at Salvador Bahia Airport, this recognition is the result of a commitment to punctuality, which involves various actors, such as airlines, companies that support ground operations, the Air Traffic Control Agency and Salvador Bahia Airport's solutions aimed at improving operational efficiency.

"We always put the passenger experience first and that includes, in addition to a beautiful and well-equipped airport, the precision of a well-delivered service. The investment in training, technology, and process improvement has an extremely positive impact, making the passengers want to repeat the traveling experience", Mendes stated.

About Salvador Bahia Airport

Located in Salvador, capital of Bahia and the first Brazilian capital, Salvador Bahia Airport has been part of the VINCI Airports network since January 2, 2018 through a 30-year Concession Contract. Since then, the airport has incorporated global operating standards, seeking to deliver more efficiency, safety and a better travel experience for its passengers. With this objective, works were carried out to modernize and expand the passenger terminal, an investment of R $ 700 million that increased its capacity by 50%, from 10 million to 15 million passengers per year.

Named as the "Most Sustainable Aerodrome in Brazil", Salvador Bahia Airport stands out for its pioneering spirit in environmental preservation actions. Guided by Air Pact, VINCI Airports' global strategy, the airport was the first in Brazil to reuse 100% of the water consumed, not to dispense solid waste for landfills and to have a solar plant – with 4.2 MW of power. The airport's actions to reduce carbon emissions led it to receive the Carbon Accreditation Certification (ACA Certification) by the International Airport Council (ACI).
