The lack of investments also affects the hiring of professionals, since the increase in demand for people requires adequate transport and, at the current juncture, the transit of labor by the airport is unfeasible.

The federal government intends to auction the Macaé airport and the victory/ES airports together. The bidding in blocks is part of a strategy that seeks to group terminals by business vocation and merge surplus and deficit into a single "package".  In this way, the best bid guarantees two airports.

The Fluminense government is in favour of joint bidding, because it sees a way to boost the works and to launch the airport. According to estimates, over 30 years of concession should be injected into the terminal about R $324 million, being some immediate demands, such as the construction of a new track.
