Brazil's ANAC Favors End Of Bilaterals In South America

04/23/2007

The CEO of Brazilian civil aviation regulator ANAC said he supports abolishing bilateral agreements among countries in the region in favor of a more multilateral approach.

"Now, every time we want to increase frequencies, we have to call for consultations with the other party within the limitations of a bilateral environment," CEO Milton Zuanazzi told O Globo at a recent symposium on the role of aviation in the integration of South America. "On the other hand in a multilateral framework, in which countries would determine reciprocal accessibility among themselves, air traffic in South America is bound to grow beyond its current restrictions."

An ANAC study forecasts that traffic in South America could be increased from the current annual 30 billion kilometer/seats to 350 billion in 2025 through the multilateral approach.

A South American open skies would be great. A first step at least to finally be able to affordably get to know this amazing continent.

That is a good start. But Brazil being of continental dimensions, xenophobic feelings crop up here and there. I wonder what the reaction would be if LAN took Brazil by storm.

This is a dream of Brazilian Government. More flights between all South America to increase the number of Hubs in the region, from a limited number (nowadays we have only 1 real hub) to at least 5 to 7 including 3 more in Brazil (BSB, GIG and REC) taking advantage of the growing South America is experiencing.

But there's lots of things to do in order to go on a Open Skies. But it's good to know that Brazil is trying to learn with the good examples.

Quoting Incitatus (Reply 2):

I think it would be a TAM-Gol slugfest more then LAN. But it sounds like they realize they need more routes and frequencies, so there's more for everyone, AA too.

Their pax load estimate is incredible, but there are maney underserved routes. To the States and Europe, and internal (which have been ok on my trips, easier then getting there).

Ok, later, the Turkish Grand Prix is on, Stoner is leading, 17 laps to go.

This is a favorable development for the region's aviation sector. Brasil is, obviously, the 800-lb gorilla in South America and its political leadership regarding commercial aviation liberalization is very, very, very important. I also hope that outdated policies such as foreign ownership thresholds and cabotage restrictions will go away...

I hope the entire region [meaning all of South America] will eventually sign and ratify an open skies agreement with the US and the EU, further liberalizing the sector and opening up air travel to millions of people across the continent.

For the first time in a long time, there appears to be political movement towards a GLOBAL liberalization of civil aviation markets. The potential benefits to consumers will be tremendous.

I can think of one airline which really would love open skies with Brazil... CM
As long as the other major Brazilian cities aren't frequently served non-stop from MIA, CM could benefit a lot from flying to those cities.. BEL, FOR, REC, SSA, CNF, BSB, CWB, POA, CGB (!)



I don't work for COPA Airlines!

Be in mind that an open skies will be good for other airlines also because those destinations will mention will be stronger and able to receive further international services.
Imagine that nowadays some domestic markets like Argentina are very restrictive, but will be easy to fly COR-POA, COR-GIG, COR-BSB and then fly to other destinations, like MIA, LIS, CDG and others.
The more people you connect to the system, the more demand is created and no doubt, there is more to come.

Also we can see in the near future Lan, Gol, Tam and Avianca to become stronger which is very good not only for South America but for the entire Americas.

Well, South America already has an open skies agreement inside the Andean Community Framework since 1991. It has worked great for Andean countries, secondary cities have received international flights to other Andean countries. 5th freedom is also allowed for any points inside the Andean Community. Example: VH used to fly CCS-BOG-UIO-BOG-CCS, CCS-GYE-LIM-GYE-CCS and LAB ViruViru-CCS-BOG-CCS-ViruViru both with full rights on all legs.

Its time to have Mercosur & Chile join this open skies agreement that already exists and it would be good to allow cabotage rights as it happens in the European Union.

Saludos desde Caracas,
Luis
