June 2008: The USA and Brazil announced an enhanced air services agreement that will provide for a nearly +50% increase in passenger flights between the countries, while eliminating restrictions on the number of airlines that can fly the routes. "This agreement will help air carriers meet the growing demand for passenger and cargo services between the USA and Brazil," USA Secretary of Transportation, Mary Peters said. "Now more than ever, it is crucial that we give USA carriers every possible opportunity to compete and succeed wherever passengers want to fly." The previous agreement allowed only four airlines from each country to fly to the other, while the new deal removes those limits. In addition, the number of permissible weekly flights between the nations will increase in four stages to 154 from the current 105 between next month and October 2010.

USA carriers will gain access to Fortaleza, Curitiba, and three additional new cities to be selected by USA authorities. At present, American Airlines (AAL), Continental Airlines (CAL), Delta Air Lines (DAL), and United Airlines (UAL) fly to Sao Paolo and Rio de Janeiro Galeao. USA and Brazilian carriers also now will be permitted to provide certain code share services with partners from third countries.

Weekly cargo flights will increase to 35 from 24 immediately, and to 42 in 2010, while the number of cargo charters allowed, also will rise. USA cargo companies now will be permitted to transfer freight from airplanes to ground vehicles for home and office delivery in Brazil. The terms of the agreement will be applied on a reciprocal basis until it enters into force.
