Performing check-in over the internet is one of the recommendations of the control bodies. Credit: Arquivo / MTurMore than 713 thousand people must pass through the main airports of the country between this Friday (09.10) and next Monday (12.10), national holiday of Nossa Senhora Aparecida. The number is from a survey carried out by the Ministry of Tourism with the administrators of the Brazilian airport terminals. The International Airports of Brasília and Santos Dumont (RJ) will be one of the busiest in the country, receiving around 129 thousand and 75 thousand passengers during these days, respectively. Guarulhos expects a movement 20% greater than that normally registered. For the Minister of Tourism, Marcelo Álvaro Antônio, the expectation is that this holiday will have more movement than the one of September 7 and that it will be another good step for the resumption of the sector. “These growing numbers show the intention of Brazilians to explore national destinations and confidence in the health security protocols proposed by MTur, returning to tourist activities responsibly and with all health care to prevent covid,” he said. Searched destinations, the capital of São Paulo is among the favorites of travelers, in addition to Rio de Janeiro (RJ), Recife (PE) and Fortaleza (CE). Recently, a survey conducted by the Waze collaborative traffic and navigation app found that São Paulo (SP), the capital of Rio de Janeiro and Ceará, were among the cities with the highest passenger flow. In addition, the study also pointed out the preference of Brazilians for destinations close to home. In May, the National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa) and the Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) implemented measures for airlines and airports. In addition to the permanent use of masks by passengers and employees, the distance of two meters between people and the cleaning of terminals and aircraft, the use of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) by workers is indicated, depending on the situation; the encouragement of communication campaigns and the dissemination of audible warnings, among other actions. RESPONSIBLE TOURISM SEAL – Launched in June, the “Responsible Tourism – Clean and Safe” seal, made available by the Ministry of Tourism, seeks to assist the resumption of activities in the sector following biosafety requirements.

Currently, the certificate has already been issued by more than 22,700 tourist establishments in the country. Edition: Lívia Nascimento
