DAC, the Brazilian Civil Aviation Department, has been pressuring BRA to become a regular scheduled airline, and taking into account VP's demise, probably encourage BRA's management to move into that direction sooner.
BRA's current fleet operate only charter flights and is constituted of five 737-300s, three 737-400s, and one 767-200 for European charter flights. In 2003, the airline flew 1.5 million pax, and if already was a regular-scheduled airline they would have about a 5% market share.
