Gradually, Brasília Airport has been registering a resumption in air operations. The flow is still timid and very distant from the movement before the pandemic, but it has been growing little by little and month by month. In August, the expectation is for a 58% increase in the number of flights when compared to July.
The month will also have new destinations being operated, and cities like Aracajú and Imperatriz are once again interconnected with the federal capital. With that, Brasília returns to connect directly with 35 Brazilian cities and returns to be an essential hub.
The average number of flights during the month is expected to be approximately 120 daily landings and departures. To receive these new frequencies, Inframerica has been adopting several health protocols, such as the thermographic solution to measure passengers’ body temperature and the availability of alcohol gel scattered in the main points of the terminal.
Inframerica’s actions also include intensifying the cleaning of the terminal using ICU disinfection products, separating tables, chairs, and signaling a safe distance in lines, counters, and elevators.
