SAO PAULO May 6 (Reuters) - Brazilian builder Grupo Engevix agreed to sell its stakes in the privately run Brasilia and Natal airports to Argentine partner Corporacion America, the companies said in a joint statement on Wednesday.

Engevix is one of dozens of engineering firms caught up in a corruption investigation of Brazil's state-run oil producer Petroleo Brasileiro SA, which has hurt companies' access to credit markets, forcing many to sell assets in order to raise cash. (Reporting by Leonardo Goy; Editing by Chris Reese)
