In addition to the contests mentioned, another way to get a place and open a business in the new airport is through the presentation of a technical proposal .

In the technical proposals, a presentation of the business project is made, to determine if it will be profitable and attractive for travelers passing through the airport. In addition to the already mentioned economic offer per square meter, it is possible to present a percentage of income not less than 15 percent of monthly income, where the highest amount is preferred.

To compete for the rental of a premises, the business must already be registered with the Treasury, preferably have a trademark registration and be able to demonstrate their experience in the business in order for it to be successful.
