Brazil could allow foreign airlines to operate domestic flights during World Cup

President Dilma Rousseff’s Chief of Staff, Gleisi Hoffman, has stated that Brazil’s government will not allow ‘abusive’ price hikes during the World Cup and that one preventative measure being considered is to allow foreign carriers to operate Brazilian domestic flights during the tournament.

At present, this market is dominated by two Brazilian airlines, Gol and TAM.

“We have not taken a decision as yet, but if there is abuse that is one of the measures being considered,” Ms Hoffman told Folha do Sao Paulo before adding that this measure could be introduced well in advance of the tournament as the constitution gives the President powers to rule by decree in special circumstances.
