São Paulo Catarina Executive International Airport

Built in an area of ​​5.2 million m2, the São Paulo Catarina Executive International Airport is located at km 62 of Rodovia Presidente Castello Branco, with easy access to the main business centers of the capital. Furthermore, it is part of the Integrated Urban Development Catarina, also made up of Shopping Catarina Fashion Outlet.

With the inauguration of São Paulo Catarina Executive International Airport, Brazilian business aviation enters a new era. The São Paulo Catarina Executive International Airport brings together the characteristics of the best airports in the world, such as Farnborough, Le Bourget and Teterboro Airport.

Offering a 2,470-metre runway, São Paulo Catarina Aeroporto Executivo Internacional is a 14-minute helicopter ride from São Paulo or a 30-minute drive. It is the First Authorized International Airport in Brazil and offers very special exclusivities: design by Sig Bergamin, state-of-the-art private terminals and the largest hangar area, with Triptyque architecture. All of this provides an unprecedented atmosphere of comfort and privacy.

The airport’s development also relied on partnerships with important national and international companies, references in the airport and infrastructure sectors in the world, including Airport Consulting Vienna (ACV), responsible for the project and market studies validated by the Spanish consultancy ALG, and the Danish Ramboll, developer of the technical project, among others.

The exclusive focus on business aviation allows the São Paulo Catarina Executive International Airport to offer 200 thousand take-offs and landings per year, including intercontinental executive jets. The runway at São Paulo Catarina Executive International Airport is the largest among executive airports: 2.5km.

Now with authorization to operate flights to New York, London or Paris, the airport becomes the first International Airport dedicated exclusively to business aviation in the country with permission to make aircraft landings from other countries and take offs outside Brazil and consolidates as the most attractive and modern gateway for travelers who come to São Paulo on business.

Specifically designed for Business Aviation, able to handle most of the existing executive aircrafts on long-haul international flights



JHSF – one of the leading real estate companies in Brazil – will implement a series of actions for the populations of São Roque and Mairinque, in São Paulo. Developer of the Catarina project, which will feature a private business airport, retail outlet mall and high-end office buildings, JHSF supports and also carries out a number of measures aimed at education, health, training, safety and the welfare of the citizens of these two cities that will be most directly affected by the undertaking.


In partnership with the city of San Roque and the Ecofuturo Institute, JHSF supports access to books and reading through the Community Libraries Project “Ler é Preciso” (“Need to Read”), an important tool to promote education and culture. The company has signed a commitment to sponsor installation, maintenance and management. The library, which has 1372 square feet of construction, is available to the whole community and its collection already has more than a thousand books.


In order to make use of local labor for the construction and operation of the Catarina project,  which will prevents population displacement and contribute to the generation of employment and income in the region, JHSF elaborated training plans through PAT – Worker Support Post, which has partnerships with Brazilian industry institutions SENAI, SENAC and others. Focusing on locations considered more vulnerable, such as the neighborhoods of  Mombasa and Dona Catarina, in São Roque, JHSF projects creating 1,360 jobs in the implantation phase of the Catarina Fashion Outlet. Local residents from São Roque and Mairinque will have preference in hiring.


To increase community safety, JHSF in partnership with the city of San Roque, supports the construction of Tourist Portals at three strategic points in the Saboó neighborhood. The portals will be equipped with surveillance cameras to fight crime and to monitor the entry and exit of residents and visitors.


The construction of Tourist Portals at the principal entrances to the Saboó neighborhood will also be of great importance for the ecological preservation of Morro do Saboó Hill and its surroundings. The initiative, which has the support of JHSF and the City of San Roque, aims to define the boundaries of the region’s tourist area and prevent environmental degradation. It will, also, limit the access of large vehicles by restricting cargo weight and gross weight.


In order to prevent the construction of new squatter settlements in the districts of Saboó and Mombasa, JHSF and the city of São Roque are studying the introduction of preventive measures in the region. One proposal being considered is hiring specialized professionals to implement the necessary legal procedures and also to intensify inspections in the area.
