Brazilian carriers will offer almost 2000 extra flights to accommodate the football fans set to descend on the country for the World Cup.
Most of the flights will be offered by the four main carriers in Brazil: TAM, Azul, Gol, and Avianca, and will connect the 12 host cities. These host cities are spread all over the nation, which makes flights between events necessary.
Anyone in Australia who hasn’t yet booked their flight(s) for the World Cup might be out of luck, though: flights from Australia to Rio de Janeiro are either sold out or have been increased to cost twice the normal amount. Flights on LAN and Qantas from June 4 through June 23 and from June 25 through June 28 are completely sold out.
