Airlines urge caution in Brazil

11 December 2006

Two European airlines have adopted special precautions for flying in Brazil, a leading Brazilian newspaper reported on Sunday, a day after the country’s president pledged to resolve a nationwide air traffic crisis.

The airlines will tell pilots they doubted the safety of Brazilian air space and instruct them to fly at the edges of air traffic lanes and take other defensive measures, Christoph Gilgen of the Federation of International Air Traffic Controllers Associations (Ifatca), told Folha de S. Paulo.

Ifatca seriously discussed rating Brazil’s air space “dangerous” — a label it uses for some African nations – but opted instead for “under suspicion,” the newspaper said.
