ANAC facilitates the process of exporting Brazilian aircraft, resulting in savings of BRL 50M per year

A Normative Instruction issued by the Federal Revenue Service published on 10/27 reduces the bureaucracy of the aircraft export process, correcting a historical distortion in the Brazilian aviation sector. FICTA export regulations apply to aircraft owned by a foreign buyer, industrialized, and for use in the national territory, and should result in savings of BRL 50 M per year per airline. Thus, in addition to reducing the operating costs of airlines, the measure will also reduce the environmental impacts generated by unnecessary transfers of aircraft produced and used in Brazil, but contracted with foreigners. In addition, it will help to encourage a reduction in the final price of air tickets. The Instruction was necessary to regulate art. 6 of Law #9,826, of August 23, 1999 and § 2 of art. 61 of Law #10,833, of December 29, 2003, amended by Law 14,368, better known as the “Simple Flight Law”, which guarantees more efficiency, more development, and less costs to Brazilian aviation. The law also contributes to updating outdated rules in norms that govern Brazilian aviation towards best international practices. Before, for an aircraft manufactured in Brazil to be exported to another country, it needs to be taken to a neighboring country, usually Uruguay, just to carry out the export. Thus, after carrying out the migration and customs procedures at an international airport, the aircraft returned to Brazil to be imported by the Brazilian operator, which took, on average, seven days. Such procedures represent an additional cost for airlines, especially for the execution of export and import transfers, payment of aircraft lease during the unproductive period. – https://www.aeroflap.com.br/anac-facilita-o-processo-de-exportacao-de-aeronaves-brasileiras-resultando-em-economia-de-r-50-milhoes-por-ano/
