In May, the airline GOL began operating more international flights from Buenos Aires, Miami, and Orlando to Brasilia, with four weekly frequencies.

For November, the forecast is to start the route between the cities of Buenos Aires and Natal, in addition to resuming, by December, all destinations in Argentina that existed in 2019.

For its part, United Airlines resumed its flights between Chicago and Sao Paulo and between Houston and Rio de Janeiro in the first half of the year.

Germany’s Lufthansa has also contributed to the increased connectivity offering, with the return of operations from Frankfurt and Munich to Rio de Janeiro and daily flights from Amsterdam to Rio de Janeiro.

Eastern Air plans to increase flights from Miami and New York to Belo Horizonte in October.
