Brazil is considered the largest market in the region as the country represents 35 percent of the air traffic sector, with growth attributed to increases in consumer spending and Brazil’s tourism segment as well as its growing middle class.

International traffic grew by more 87 percent and the domestic market grew 2.4 times since the year 2000, placing Brazil as the fourth biggest domestic segment worldwide in 20 years after China, U.S. and India.
