US-Brazil Bilateral

Mon Sep 17, 2007 8:15 am

Can anyone help me in what the major points of the US-Brazil bilateral aviation agreement are, and where I can find the particulars?

I know it is fairly restrictive, but I was curious what the exact structure was, how many frequencies, and how it is decided who can fly where?

104 weekly flights for each country's carriers, which are currently used as follows:

AA: 53x
CO: 14x
DL: 21x
UA: 14x

JJ: 35x

There are also exemptions beyond the bilateral. AA and DL both have exemptions that allow them to operate additional flights during peak periods, but they have to re-apply every season for them. This year, AA has five additional frequencies, and DL has four. There are actually two US-carrier frequencies that are unused, believe it or not.

Does the bilateral also stipulate which cities in each country can be served?

Yes. Airlines from the US can serve: MAO, BSB, GIG, GRU, REC, POA, BEL, CNF and SSA and from these cities to Uruguay, Paraguay, Argentina and Chile.

They can also codeshare to up to 30 destinations in Brazil, 14 of which were alredy selected by the american airlines: CGR, CGB, CWB, FLN, FOR, IGU, GYN, JPA, JOI, MCZ, NAT, RAO, SLZ and VIX.

The brazilian airlines can serve: JFK, ATL, MIA, ORD, DTW, IAD, IAH, MCO, LAX, SFO, BOS, SJU and from these cities the flight can go on to destinations in Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Canada, Taiwan, Macau, ICN, PEK and BKK. Also from LAX to one or two destinations in Japan.

They can also codeshare to up to 30 destinations in the US, 26 of which were selected: DEN, LAS, SAN, SEA, HNL, CLE, PDX, PHX, TUS, MSY, MSP, DFW, PHL, CVG, TPA, PIT, STL, SLC, RDU, BNA, AUS, SJC, TUS, JAX, CMH and IND.

In fact it's 105 weekly frequencies Mark, not 104.

http://www.anac.gov.br/arquivos/pdf/...rdosBilaterais/E/EstadosUnidos.pdf

And i believe AA holds only 52 weekly flights not 53:

GIG-MIA 7
GRU-MIA 26
GIG-GRU-JFK 7
GRU-DFW 12

And considering Brazilian side, Ocean Air holds 7 LAX and Varig 13 MIA, 10 JFK plus 4 LAX frequencies.
