Brazil’s tourism industry has undergone a renewal, with infrastructure and security investments helping restore it to pre-pandemic levels.
According to a survey conducted by Embratur (Brazilian agency for international tourism promotion) and the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the United States tops the list of countries purchasing airline tickets for travel to Brazil during the 2022/23 summer season. As of November 9, a total of 801,110 tickets had been purchased by travellers from various countries.
In the ranking of countries that bought the most tickets, the United States comes first followed by Argentina, Portugal, Chile, and France.
Considering that Brazil is home to some of the most outstanding attractions in the world, these tourist numbers come as no surprise. Each year more than two million travellers choose to visit the Cristo Redentor Statue, one of the New 7 Wonders of the World. Another treasured jewel in Brazil is The Amazon, responsible for 20% of the Earth’s oxygen this large rainforest was voted to be one of the New7Wonders of Nature.
Brazil’s global connectivity is increasing, and in November 2022, 4,367 international flights were registered. This translates to a production of around 95% of what was shown in 2019, the last year before the pandemic, and a rise of 44.54% compared to the same period in 2021.
Even in a month that is regarded as low season for tourists, the near 100% recovery confirms expectations for a historic summer in the nation. Between December 2022 and March 2023, over 1.02 million foreign tickets have already been purchased to enjoy Brazilian destinations.
