Brasil's Viracopos International airport in Campinas, near São Paulo, has contracted Munich airport for consulting support for its planned expansion.

The agreement between the former's operator, Aeroportos Brasil Viracopos, and the consultancy division of Germany's second largest hub covers guidance for the operational start of an additional terminal that is being constructed at Viracopos. It also covers planning assistance for its further expansion in the future.

The consultants should further help "boost quality and efficiency" through process improvement, says Munich airport.

The team will be involved in managing flight operations, safety and quality assurance, airline marketing and projecting traffic development.

The contract is worth around €7 million ($9 million) and "initially" set to run until the end of 2014.

Munich's gateway has focussed on marketing its expertise for opening and relocating airports, having moved its own operations from the city's former hub in Riem to the current location in 1992.
