Universal Aviation Brazil expands support at São Paulo Catarina
Due to the airport's growing popularity with international operators, and to help give Universal customers a greater span of control of their missions, UA Brazil has added full-time staff at Catarina.
There is far less congestion at Catarina than at other São Paulo area airports, and the 1.6 mile runway and ample hangar space mean it can support the largest of executive jets.

Universal Aviation Brazil is now supporting operators at São Paulo Catarina International Executive airport with a full-time staff. The private airport is located in the city of São Roque, approximately 40 minutes by car or 14 minutes by helicopter west of São Paulo. It is São Paulo's only executive airport, and Universal Aviation Brazil is the only third-party business aviation supervisory ground handler at the airport.

“Since opening in 2019, we've seen an increase in customers using Catarina Executive airport,” says general manager Andre Camargo. “Due to the airport's growing popularity with international operators and to help give Universal customers a greater span of control of their missions, we have added full-time staff at Catarina.”

One of Latin America's most modern and technologically advanced airports, Catarina features a 2,470m runway capable of accommodating large private jets and can handle up to 200,000 passengers per year.

“From our main FBO services office in Brazil, we will work with our team on the ground at Catarina Executive to manage all third-party arrangements, ensuring every detail is in place for our customers' arrival,” adds Camargo. “We have a very good working relationship with the airport's management and the local authorities, allowing us to secure parking and permits quickly and deal with any surprises that may pop up on the ground.”
