Brazilian Airlines Place US$420 Cap On Local Flights During The World Cup


Airlines have been charging a premium on flights to Brazil ever since it was announced the World Cup would be hosted there.

But two local Brazilian airlines, Avianca and Azul, have decided to go a different route by placing a 999 reais (US$420) cap on domestic flights in Brazil from February to July for people attending the World Cup.

The tourism authority is very pleased with this move and is urging other local airlines to follow this example.

In addition to this, the ANAC (Brazilian agency responsible for the regulation and the safety oversight of civil aviation) is expected to authorize 1,500 additional flights during the World Cup, which should help to ease prices.
