Brazil overtakes Mexico to become Latin America’s largest aviation market in January

This is the first time in several years that the South American country has surpassed Mexico in the monthly comparison of the number of passengers, reported the British website Simple Flying. According to data recently released by Brazil’s Civil Aviation Agency, Brazil received 10.15 million passengers in January, with 8.32 million domestic passengers and 1.83 million international passengers, led by LATAM, GOL, and Azul. Mexico, led by Volaris, Aeromexico, and Viva Aerobus, had 9.93 million passengers in January, with 4.97 million domestic and 4.95 international. Despite the numbers, Brazil has not yet fully recovered from the COVID-19 pandemic. In January 2020, the country had 11.57 million passengers. Total recovery reached 88%, driven mainly by the domestic segment (89.4%). LATAM remains Brazil’s leading airline, carrying 3.28 million passengers. GOL Linhas Aereas also transported more than three million and held 30.25% of the market. Finally, Azul Linhas Aereas transported 2.59 million passengers and a market share of 25.51%. The coming months, however, will depend on fluctuations in demand vis-à-vis the economic scenario, currency prices and Brazil’s resilience in this adverse scenario around the world. However, the same will apply to Mexico and every other major market in the world. – https://aeroin.net/brasil-ultrapassa-o-mexico-e-se-torna-o-maior-mercado-de-aviacao-da-america-latina-em-janeiro/
