At the invitation of the International Air Transport Association (IATA), which represents about 290 companies from all over the world, Brazil will be one of the leading countries in discussing and aligning the necessary measures for the resumption of the air sector in the context of confronting the Covid-19 pandemic. The Brazilian government appointed as representatives the National Secretary of Civil Aviation of the Ministry of Infrastructure, Ronei Glanzmann, and the deputy director-president of the National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC), Juliano Noman.
IATA’s General Director, Alexandre de Juniac, talked last week with the Minister of Infrastructure, Tarcísio Gomes de Freitas, and thanked the commitment and leadership of Brazil in overcoming the crisis experienced by the industry. There is consensus among governments of several countries and companies that at least for the foreseeable future, the air travel experience will be a different one. The adoption of sanitary protocols in airports and aircraft is considered fundamental for a safe resumption of travel, in the search for passenger confidence and the gradual reopening of borders.
