The recent privatization of large airports in Brazil broke with a historical paradigm - that of the State as a manager - characterized as an inhibitor of competition, causing these terminals to be stopped in time, in disarray with the best management practices adopted internationally. In this context, the delivery of these airports to private management represents a new incentive to this economic activity and all that it brings to the country's development, and can greatly improve the provision of services and efficiency to users, whether they are passengers or cargo. Although the government concession model has undergone improvements, the first concessions were characterized by strong State influence, that alone held 49% of the shares, there was a change in this scenario through the most recent auctions when the mandatory participation of state was extinguished, making the model more attractive. The aim of this paper is show an analysis of two items about Confins International Airport, that one of the privatized airport. The analyzed items were general satisfaction index and total arrivals and departures between July 2015 and June 2017. About the general satisfaction index, it was observed that there was a low variability, reflected by the coefficient of variation of 6,15%. However, there was growing satisfaction with the passage of time, the total arrivals and departures declined. In July of 2015 were 1,070,510 movements against 778,323 in June of 2017. It is very likely that the fall in the number of arrivals and departures may have been affected, in parts, by the country's economy. In any case, it can not be said that there is a strong correlation between the two variables investigated. A correlation index of -0.44 shows a negative and low correlation. In fact the number of movements decreased and the satisfaction index increased. In these terms, it can be inferred that, despite the influence of the economy in the airport movement, there is a g
