Ground-handling group Swissport has been selected to manage an FBO/hangar project currently under construction at Brazil’s Sorocaba Airport. When completed at year-end, the new World-Way Aviation facility will cover 150,000 sq ft, including a pair of hangars with enough room for large-cabin business jets and some 100,000 sq ft of ramp space. The terminal will feature a VIP lounge, conference room, pilots’ lounge, flight-planning room and fitness center. Plans exist to upgrade Sorocaba to an international airport, and it is being considered as a reliever airport for next year’s World Cup soccer tournament.
