U.S. Airways is expanding its JetBlue service to Brazil and adding five new routes to its already extensive itinerary.
The U.K.-based airline announced Tuesday it would begin flying in Brazil next year with more than a dozen flights per week from San Francisco to Rio de Janeiro.
The new flights include three in Brazil and one from Rio de Paulo to Sao Paulo.
It is the first time a U.N.-run agency has made flights to Brazil in a decade.
U.S.-based JetBlue said it would operate a new Brazilian route to Rio in early 2019.
The new routes will operate between San Francisco and Rio de Pernambuco.
The airline, which had been operating in the United States since 1996, is expanding services to Brazil from the U. S. in 2019.UBS economist Robert Green said U.C. Davis professor Thomas Tullen’s forecast for the U,S.-Brazil relationship, a key driver of U.F.O. activity, was right on target.
Tullen has long forecast the arrival of a boom in U. FO activity from Brazil in the next decade.
That’s what we’re seeing now, Green said.UCSB economist Jonathan Gage said Brazil’s economy will grow faster than expected this year, with Brazil expected to generate about $3 trillion in gross domestic product this year and about $5 trillion in 2021, according to the International Monetary Fund.
The forecast is for Brazil to grow to $6 trillion by 2021, up from about $2 trillion now.
