January 2006 Brazilian domestic market results were released, as follows (compared to January 2005):
TAM: 44.6% (41.2%)
GOL: 26.7% (21.5%)
RG: 19.9% (28.3%)
BRA: 6.23% (not applicable)
As expected, the result shows the emergence of a forth major player in Brazil, i.e. BRA, which has captured RG's market share (mainly in the CGH-SDU shuttle service).
As compared to January 2005, the Brazilian market grew 21%, and the load factor was a healthy 75%.
RG's troubled situation is far from over, and BRA may well overtake RG as no. 3.
