2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, travel to and within Brazil is top of mind for travelers, airlines and governments. Not only will Brazil host and accommodate travel for an estimated 600,000 visitors, roughly a 38% increase compared to the 2010 World Cup, but 3 million of its own citizens will travel for the games as well.


Brazils dedication to football has led to one of the most ambitious World Cup events ever with 32 nations participating in 64 matches taking place across a record-breaking 12 cities. The country is so large, that it could fit 1.1 million football pitches within its borders, and the shortest distance between soccer venues is 250 miles. For these reasons alone, Brazil will need to rely on air travel more than ever to transport fans.


Domestic and international demand is set to outpace airport capacity, but efficient air traffic management may be the key to providing World Cup travelers with a safer and more convenient travel experience.
