Brazilian travelers are coming to Orlando

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

Orlando visitorsBrazilian travelers are coming to Orlando and Central Florida in record numbers. Bouncing back from its nationwide economic hardships, Brazilian travel to Central Florida is poised to reach an all-time high in 2018.

A Reuters’ poll in October forecast that Brazil’s GDP would grow from 0.7 percent in 2017 to 2.3 percent in 2018, citing growth in local demand,  continuing improvement in household spending and increases in investments and capital expenditure.

“Brazil is back! And this resurgence from our third largest international market brings a welcomed boost to the local economy,” says Phil Brown, Chief Executive Officer of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority. “With the recent additional seats from Brazil, the projected economic impact for 2018 is nearly $1 billion, up 111% from 2013.”

GOL’s new service along with LATAM’s upcoming service to Fortaleza and capacity increases by Azul and Delta have helped the number of nonstop seats from Brazil to Orlando reach an all-time high of 486,000 for 2018.

Brazil MCO Statistical Data:

Scheduled seats from Brazil to Orlando for this year is 486 thousand, a new record. The previous record high was 361 thousand set prior to the Brazilian recession.
