Soccerex provides opportunity to discuss World Cup 2014 air charter requirements

It’s still more than 18 months before the first ball gets kicked, but behind the scenes planning is already underway for World Cup 2014 in Brazil.

In preparation for the global showcase, Soccerex is holding its Global Convention in Rio de Janeiro later this month, bringing together businesses of all sizes that work in the football industry – including Chapman Freeborn’s aircraft charter specialists.

With five previous World Cup wins, Brazil has a great history in the competition – but the logistical side of hosting a major international tournament of this size is one of the country’s biggest challenges yet.

Brazil has over 190 million inhabitants, and geographically it spans almost half of South America. With 12 host cities spread across the country, air travel in particular will be high on the list of priorities for staging a successful event (flights for teams, supporters, media and sponsors).

As we blogged recently, Brazil’s passenger air traffic has doubled over the past decade and the country’s general aviation market has thrived despite the global economic slowdown.

South America’s private jet market is also seeing significant growth. In the last decade the size of the business jet fleet has more than doubled to over 2000 aircraft – and the recent LABACE 2012 private jet show in Sao Paulo saw an estimated US $700 million of new business generated.

Chapman Freeborn’s Brazil office opened in 2008, making us the first international air charter firm to establish an operation in South America. The team will be at Soccerex to showcase their aircraft charter expertise and local market knowledge (Stand #326). If you would like more information please email vcp@chapman-freeborn.com

The Soccerex event will be held 24-28 November 2012. Find out more here:
