The re-heating of the Brazilian economy is driven by the attraction of the international market. And, by the movements of the airlines, this should be the tone for the next months. An analysis of Anac’s databases done by Embratur shows that with the United States alone Brazil will gain 25 new frequencies this year.

São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Recife are the cities that should receive the flights, which will come from Orlando, Dallas and New York. There will be seven new routes, which will start in May (until December 2017), operated by Latam, Avianca, Azul, American Airlines and Delta.

The attraction of new flights comes with measures to stimulate the arrival of Americans in Brazil, such as the use of electronic visa for entry into the country (besides the United States, visitors from Canada, Australia and Japan).

The president of Embratur, Vinicius Lummertz, affirms that “all these factors encourage the arrival of these visitors to Brazil. We want the foreign tourist to have more and more ways and means to reach our Country and also that Tourism represents the development of the Country” .
