Brazil reaches the highest volume of commercial flights since 2019
In August only there were 4,003 landings in the country, which represents 80.71% of the capacity demonstrated before the pandemic
The number of international flight arrivals to Brazil in August was the highest ever recorded since the start of the pandemic. This month alone there were 4,003 arrivals, which represents 80.71% of the capacity demonstrated in 2019. Compared to August 2021, there was a 232.35% increase in international connectivity.
Until July 2022, the international air network maintained an upward bias, above 70% of 2019 capacity, but had not yet exceeded 80%. “This shows that we are on the right path and the trend is to reach 100% of our connectivity by 2022”, says the president of Embratur, Silvio Nascimento.
Committed to attracting more and more foreign tourists and definitively returning Brazil to the international market platform, Embratur held meetings with airlines to increase the country's connectivity. According to the Management of Competitive Intelligence and Marketing for Tourism of Embratur, by February 2023, 134 new flights and additional frequencies are planned.
Among the novelties, the routes and frequencies that connect the world with the Northeast of Brazil stand out. In October, Aerolineas Argentinas plans to increase two frequencies on the Buenos Aires-Salvador flights. In November, TAP also estimates the return of two Lisbon-Salvador flight frequencies. In the same month, GOL will resume the Buenos Aires-Natal flight. Air Europa plans to start operating two new flights and an additional frequency in December on the Madrid-Salvador route. Also in December, GOL plans new flights: Miami-Fortaleza, Buenos Aires-Recife, Buenos Aires-Maceió and Buenos Aires-Salvador.
Currently, the continents with the most connectivity with Brazil are Latin America, with 2,068 monthly flights, Europe, with 1,045 flights, and North America, with 762 flights. Connectivity with the United States and Canada, in August, increased 28.36% in relation to the month of July.
