Rio de Janeiro. 38% of intercontinental flights that target Latin America come through Brazilian airports, while air traffic to or from Brazil grew 115% in a decade, said the aircraft manufacturer Airbus.

Brazilian airports that provide access to Latin America are mainly those of Sao Paulo (26%), Rio de Janeiro (10%) and Brasilia (2%), said Thursday a local media company’s executive vice president for Latin European America and the Caribbean, Rafael Alonso. In the next decade, Airbus estimates that there will be a 5.7% increase in domestic and intra-regional flights in Brazil, and growth above the world average for the whole of Latin America, where it will need more than 2,100 new aircraft in the next 20 years to meet demand.
