Zona da Mata Regional Airport is an airport serving Juiz de Fora and the region of Zona da Mata, located in the municipality of Goianá, Minas Gerais. The construction of the airport was completed in 2007 but the commercial operations didn't start until August 23, 2011. In March 2011 Infraero ceased to administrate the airport and Multiterminais Alfandegados do Brasil became the new administrator.
The state is currently overseeing numerous PPP deals as the country seeks to improve its infrastructure ahead of the FIFA World Cup in 2014 and 2016's Olympic Games.
