BRAZIL is to be linked to the UK by a second Sao Paulo based airline TAM. Assuming that there is a market it can only be a matter of time before British Airways finds itself competing with either Virgin or bmi to South America”s largest country. Currently BA flies daily to Sao Paulo (with three flights going on to Rio, the other four terminating at Buenos Aires) with Varig on a similar schedule but daily through to Rio. BA uses a 747 whilst Varig operates an MD11. TAM has been a leader in the Brazilian domestic market for more than two years, and had a 44.2% market share at the end of March 2006. TAM operates regular flights to 46 destinations throughout Brazil. It serves 73 different cities in the domestic market through regional alliances. TAM flies the Airbus A330 on its long haul routes.
