With the decision to relocate part of flights from CGH to GRU we can expect a solid growth of GRU in coming months. In the last semester, GRU already showed a major growth of 24% in domestic pax, which will be even stronger during the rest of the year. We can expect that by the end of the year GRU will become again Brazil's no.1 airport.

Quoting Hardiwv (Thread starter): We can expect that by the end of the year GRU will become again Brazil's no.1 airport.
However, it is possible that we will not see such healthy growth numbers across the country for a while. TAM is reporting bookings down and Gol slowed down growth plans. The effect of the TAM accident is temporary, true. On the other hand, Brazil's economic growth has a history of wide variability and the tides could turn with commodity prices.
Sorry, I dont. But maybe our friend Lipe could help us with this information. In general lines, I would say TAM dominates airports such as GRU, CGH, and BSB, while GOL has the edge in airports such as GIG, CNF and POA.
Of the international carriers, the biggest in Brazil are AR, LA, AA, TP, AF-KL, DL respectively.
Quoting Tiago701 (Reply 3): Do you think GRU will cope with all that growth,due to CGH, or that the expected deteriorating conditions and constraints will move international traffic elsewhere?
Tiago, GRU has certain limitations to cope with the relocation of flights from CGH, however, the limitation is restricted to certain time slots: from 6am to 10am and from 9pm until 11pm. In the other time slots of the day GRU has still many slots and conditions to receive more flights.
All in all, airlines should try to develop other hubs in airports which could receive more frequencies such as GIG and CNF (i.e. GOL is already doing this in GIG and TAM in BSB). The principle of funnelling all flights to a single airport is at question here and it would be healthier for Brazilian aviation to have more hubs, although this would impact airlines cost optimization. It was mentioned many times that Sao Paulo could cope with O&D traffic alone, while other hubs could serve as connections so that flights are distributed more evenly.
GRU capacity will be boosted with the new terminal 3 due to open in 2010 and with the speed rail link with downtown also to open in 2010, construction of both are to start this year.

Next month will show us some surprises as it will be the first month compared to a last year month without RG operations and also the first month where CGH will be probably handle less than 1.2 million pax.
It's very difficult because statistics are different between ANAC (which controls airlines) and INFRAERO (the airports). While ANAC counts only boarding passengers, INFRAERO keep the track of connections. I have some data at my home computer about Gol and TAM check-ins in average on each airport, what i'm trying to do is a model that can show us a good number without seasonal factors.
New York + Rio de Janeiro = One of the best combinations !

Interesting that in the league of top 10 to 20 we had substantive growth among all airports. The average growth of the top 10 aiports was 8% while in the top 10 to 20 was an amazing 17%, double the top 10 growth! We could alreay see a clear and healthy path of sustained decentralization in the aviation market in Brazil.
What has caused this massive growth at MAO? The industry in MAO I thought was not as high as it used to be when the city first started its major growth back in the day correct? I know when I have flown these routs with RG it has always been with an MD11 but wow, what a massive growth! It makes me very excited! Now if they can do some improvements on the airport there.
I am glad that Brasil is seeing a good amount of growth but that is just domestically really. At least thats what the numbers seem to show. Why are the international numbers down to certain airports? Could this be because of serveces to specific airports now intead of always having to go through GRU?
I know this airport is small but does anyone have any numbers on the growth at BVB? (Boa Vista?) That would be greatly appreciated!
TAM has increased capacity in MAO not only with the introduction of MAO-MIA, but also with addition of new flights and bigger equipment. One of TAM's GRU-MAO is now operated with the A330. Currently there are 6 daily nonstop flights GRU-MAO. The industrial base in MAO continues strong, just yesterday Yamaha announced a major investment in its production plant in MAO.
Quoting QXatFAT (Reply 13): Why are the international numbers down to certain airports?
Because of the breakdown of Varig, which removed a substantive number of seats from the market. As you know, the receovery of seats in the domestic market is much easier than in the international one because of bilaterals, etc.
Quoting QXatFAT (Reply 13): I know this airport is small but does anyone have any numbers on the growth at BVB? (Boa Vista?) That would be greatly appreciated!
BVB had a total pax movement Jan-Jun/2007 of 166.036 pax (+129%), showing a very strong growth! It could have been the result of the arrival in GOL in BVB.
Quoting OHLHD (Reply 12): Where is IGU? I thought they had quite full planes?
IGU had a total pax traffic Jan-Jun/2007 of 338.707 pax, which is equivalent to other medium-sized airport in the nearby region such as Londrina-LDB which had 276.031 pax and Navegantes-NVT which had 237.701.
IGU would rank no. 25 in the Brazilian rank of airports.
The top 20 to 25 are:
20. Maceio-MCZ: 469.440 (+8.9%)
21. Campinas-VCP/CPQ: 340.679 (+11.29%
22. São Luís-SLZ: 446.913 (+36.9%)
23. Campo Grande-CGR: 360.018 (+22.95%)
24. Aracaju-AJU: 340.679 (+3.34%)
25 Foz do Iguaçu: 338.707 (-14.8%)
Quoting TBCITDG (Reply 14): It is quite surprising that operations seem to continue to grow irrespective of RJ's demise.
And well above the growth of the Brazilian economy, which is about 4% to 5%.
DAESP manages airports in Sao Paulo state, including the largest non-Infraero airport in the country, Ribeirao Preto. Sao Jose do Rio Preto also gets good traffic. Some smaller airports see comercial service like Marilia, Aracatuba and Bauru.
Outside of Sao Paulo state there is even an airport that gets international flights and is not Infraero: BPS, Porto Seguro. That one is managed by Bahia state http://www.agerba.ba.gov.br. Agerba also manages Vitoria da Conquista.
Next is Maringa' (MGF) in Parana', is managed by the city of Maringa', it has its own website http://www.aeroportomaringa.com.br but no traffic statistics. MGF sees two departures a day from Gol and two from TAM.
Fernando de Noronha (FEN) is said by Wikipedia to be managed by Infraero but I found no evidence of such at Infraero's webpage nor is FEN in the traffic stats from Infraero.
Chapeco' (XAP), SC is managed by the city and has Gol service and Ocean Air too.
Ipatinga (IPN), MG is a private airport with commercial service by Trip and Ocean Air.
Caxias do Sul (CXJ), RS is managed by the state and has Gol and TAM service.
Other airports outside of Infraero that see commercial service are Ji-Parana (JPR), Parintins (PIN), Araxa (AAX), Araguaina (AUX), Tucurui, (TUR), Sinop (OPS), Trombetas (TMT), Criciuma (CCM), Passo Fundo (PFB), Rondonopolis (ROO), Unai (UNA) and Alta Floresta (AFL).

Quoting Incitatus (Reply 16): Chapeco' (XAP), SC is managed by the city and has Gol service and Ocean Air too.
XAP is in the process of changing management to be under Infraero administration. It is being negotiated and an outcome is expected soon. The same happened early this year with Forquilinha/Criciúma CCM which is now under Infraero management (CCM started to get TAM flights).
Quoting Incitatus (Reply 16): I would like to point out that there are more traffic stats for Brazilian airports on the web - not all of the airports in the country are managed by Infraero.
In addition to your interesting list, please also add airport Quero-Quero in Blumenau (BNU) - but most pax flying to BNU use the nearby airport of NVT. Btw, is Lages (LAJ) under Infraero management?
