American Going Direct From Miami to Campinas

The residual impact of hosting the 2014 World Cup in Brazil remain to be seen. But in one respect, there seems to have been a measurable economic bump: Travel to Brazil. Whether for business or pleasure, the world has now seen Brazil in a way it hadn’t before. And what they’ve seen so far leads them to want to see more. The big, global companies are responding. For example, American Airlines announced recently that it will add daily service between Miami International Airport and Viracopos International Airport in Campinas, Brazil, the airline’s 10th destination in the South American country. This is significant because who, outside of a few industrialists, need to travel to Campinas on the regular? In spite of it all, I’m still rooting for Brazil.

Brazilians Hope to Win International Trade Business from the World Cup

There is nothing like a major sporting event to serve as a backdrop for a business meeting.  There’s a lot of hob-knobbing going on in those hospitality tents and sky boxes.  Even if they have to travel over oceans, and mountains, and deserts to get there, many people in the international community are looking atContinue Reading

Manaus: World Cup Venue, Jewel of the Amazon Jungle

Manaus: World Cup Venue, Jewel of the Amazon Jungle

I was talking to a Brazilian friend last week when he informed me that in his opinion, and that of many Brazilians, Manaus should not be a World Cup host city.  That opinion seems to be true, but for the many travelers supporting their World Cup team, they’d probably never have a reason to visitContinue Reading
