Brazil and China sign new agreement to increase air services

15 September 2017

The new air agreement signed between Brazil and China does away with route limits, benefiting both companies that already operate between the two destinations as well as those of other nationalities whose operations involve departures and arrivals in Brazil and China, said the Brazilian National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC).


The agreement signed between ANAC and the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) is an expansion of the agreement between the two countries originally signed in 1994, the Brazilian agency said in the statement released in Brasilia.


The presidents of ANAC, José Ricardo Botelho and CAAC, Feng Zhenglin, stressed the importance of expanding the air services agreement for the growth of passenger and cargo air traffic between Brazil and China.


The previous air agreement between Brazil and China stipulated limited routes, with only three intermediate stops allowed in both countries and one beyond the final destination.


The new agreement allows companies that already operate or start operating the connections between the two countries to use any country as an intermediate stopover point, in addition to the final destination of the routes. (macauhub)
