It is pleasing that Infraero, the 49% minority partner, will retain strategic responsibility for eg. new runways, freight development capacity, . . . . possibly priority to particular airlines for slots (but see below).
But this will still be managed corruptly unless there is some oversight to control corruption. For instance LAN/TAM may wish to keep Azul out in the cold and away from the big airports - competitor pressure needs an arbitrator and this should NOT be Infraero. Such matters MUST be made transparent to public scrutiny.
Because this should not become just another pot of gold from which hundreds of politicians etc can become personal millionaires.
