19 de setembro de 2017

São Paulo – There were 5,071 International passenger arrivals in Brazil in the first half of the year, according to data supplied by the Ministry of Tourism this Tuesday (19) and computed by the National Civil Aviation Agency (Anac) and the Brazilian Airport Infrastructure Company (Infraero). Arrivals were up 1.97% from H1 2016.

“This slight increase signals that the country’s economy is recovering. Bigger arrival numbers show people are travelling more, be it on leisure or business, driving the tourism industry economic chain,” a press release quoted Tourism minister Marx Beltrão as saying. Domestic arrivals reached 44.2 million, down 0.64% year-on-year.
