Air China plans to increase the frequency of flights between China and Brazil, which currently stands at two a week – on Thursdays and Sundays – the director for Air China in Brazil, Calvin Tang said in Sao Paulo.

At a meeting with travel agencies that offer China as a destination, Tang said he was sure that the aviation business between the two countries would grow over the next few years and noted the impact of Brazilian soccer club Corinthians on Air China’s flights.

“The Corinthians game in the Club World Cup took a lot of fans to Japan and many of them chose Air China, so we have attracted new customers,” said the airline’s director in Brazil according to tourism newspaper, Brasilturis Jornal.

Air China has been in Brazil for six years and has an office in Sao Paulo. The airline has a fleet of 432 aircraft operating on 282 routes in 30 countries and 1,300 destinations due to its involvement in the Star Alliance airline partnership. (macauhub)
