  • Competition in Brazil heats up

    News | 20 Aug 2009 12:02 | Brendan Sobie

    <P>It may not be the best year to wage a market share war but Brazil's carriers are holding up relatively well despite the seemingly brutal combination of overcapacity and a global recession.</P> <P>Rapid expansion at start-up Azul, low-cost carrier Webjet and regional airline TRIP have driven a significant capacity increase in Brazil's already highly competitive domestic market. Domestic ASKs shot up 10% over the first six months and 15% in July. But RPKs only grew by 3% in the first half, resulting in a 4.2 point drop in load factor to 63.2%.</P> <P>Brazil's two big carriers, Gol and TAM, both saw their domestic load factors slip into the 50s for a couple of months during the first half. But after incurring losses for 2008 both were back in the black for the first half, with Gol and TAM reporting healthy first half profits of 415 million reais ($227 million) and 845 million reais, respectively.</P> <P>Gol chief executive <A href="http://www.flightglobal.com/articles/2008/11/17/31http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Competition-in-Brazil-heats-up-331237/
