Altamira Interstate Airport (ATM)

Located in the central-south region of Pará, in the north of the country, Altamira is more than 800 kilometers from Belém, the state capital, and is located on the banks of the Xingu River, with its series of creeks and waterfalls distributed throughout the region. Since 2011, when work began on installing the Belo Monte hydroelectric plant, considered the third largest plant in the world and built in the Xingu River basin, the airport has recorded a significant increase in the number of passengers.

On November 30, 2023, Altamira Interstate Airport (SBHT) began to be managed by Aena Brasil, after the concessionaire purchased a block of 11 Brazilian airport terminals in an auction by the National Civil Aviation Agency (Anac) held in 2022. As it already manages, since 2020, six units in the Northeast, Aena Brasil runs, in total, 17 airports in the country. The company is part of the Spanish company Aena, considered the largest airport operator in the world in terms of number of passengers.
Altamira airport handles domestic flights, acting as an important entry and exit point for the Transamazônica region. Altamirenses have had the option of air transport since 1950, when the first local airport was created, with a dirt floor and a commercial airline established by the now extinct Panair do Brasil.
