Brasilia airport can be a point of concentration of flights.

It’s in the plans of the federal government measures that would help the Brasilia International Airport to become a central point – hub – for Latin America.

One of the projects is to reduce from 25% to 12% Tax on Circulation of Goods and Services (ICMS) for the aircraft to be supplied. If approved, the Federal District government extend further strategies to make the airport a central air traffic.

According to the Department of Civil Aviation (SAC), the airport’s capacity will be expanded from 16 million passengers per year to 21 million by the World Cup 2014. However, this number is still increasing, reaching further to 41 million passengers.

The minister visited Wagner Bittencourt works in the airline industry of the six host cities of the World Cup in 2014 and said that conform to the schedule.

Also according to the Governor Agnelo Queiroz, the improvements being made at the airport to receive tourists during the FIFA event will be felt well after the event, since access to the city via fast shipping, using exclusive line up hotels will be maintained.
