A few things you should know when arriving
at Fortaleza Airport.

Fortaleza Airport is a modern structure. Remodeled in 1998 and again in 2014 to handle up to 2.5 million annual passengers. The terminals are air conditioned and kept very clean throughout. It has a well organized floor plan and isn't very big. So it's really easy to get around, and better yet, get in and get out of!

HISTORY : The Fortaleza Airport runway was built in the 1930s and used by the Ceará Flying School until 2000. During World War II, the airport was an important military base supporting the Southern Atlantic Allied Forces. In 1952 the original name, Cocorote Airport, was changed to its present name Pinto Martins International Airport. In 1966 a passenger terminal and apron were built. Those facilities are at present "The Old Airport" or in Portuguese " O Aeroporto Antigo" and provides the necessary space for general aviation operations by small aircraft and helicopter flights.

From 1974 to December 2017 the airport was operated by Infraero. It was auctioned on March 16, 2017 to Fraport AG of Frankfurt, Germany for R$ 425 million with a 30 year contract. The contract includes plans to reform the current terminal and terminate an existing structure under construction and abandoned by Infraero. The contract also includes extending the existing runway and completing the passenger terminal abandoned by Infraero.
