During Routes World 2022, a forum that takes place in Las Vegas, in the United States, and brings together the international community to discuss the development of air routes, Embratur intensified negotiations to expand Brazil’s connectivity with the world. The president of Embratur, Silvio Nascimento, met with the commercial directors of Rio-Galeao, Patrick Fehring, and of GRU Airport, Joao Pita, with the commercial director of the Moroccan National Tourism Office (ONMT, in Portuguese), Hatim El Almi, with representatives from BH Airport, as well as executives from TAP Air Portugal, JetSmart, and Viva Air Colombia, both low-cost companies operating in South America.
