Flights to Brazil - Passenger Guide
ID Card Presentation
The ID Card (Identification Card) is the most important document in domestic flights. This document is now requested also when the passenger has access to the departure lounge. After presenting your identification at the airline counter, keep the identification card always at hand.
To avoid problems, Infraero has increased its permanent safety staff. More professional are available for checking IDs, so as to avoid the lines from accumulating at departure time. When the passenger keeps his ID Card accessible, waiting time decreases and at the same time this ensures compliance with safety rules.
It is also important to pay attention to the laws that govern the trips of children and teenagers. Children up to 12 incomplete years of age not accompanied must present a judicial authorization to land. If they are accompanied by a person other than the parents (event relatives), they must present their original birth certificate. Unaccompanied teenagers from 12 to 18 need to present their original birth certificate.
The city of Rio de Janeiro has been elected as the Host City of the Games of the XXXI Olympiad in 2016.
The Rio 2016 Olympics will be the second edition held in Latin America (after Mexico City 1968), the first edition held in South America, the third edition held in the southern hemisphere (the first of those three outside of Australia), and the first games in a lusophone country.
The Rio 2016 Olympic Games will be, first and foremost, a celebration of athletes, who will perform in world-class venues all located in the host city itself. The Rio 2016 Olympics will also celebrate and showcase sport, thanks to the city’s stunning setting and a desire to lift event presentation to new heights. At the same time, Rio 2016 will be an opportunity to deliver the broader aspirations for the long-term future of the city, region and country – an opportunity to hasten the transformation of Rio de Janeiro into an even greater global city.
Rio 2016 Olympics will provide memories of a lifetime for every athlete and all other members of the Games Family. And the Games will leave a powerful legacy by meeting the long-term needs of the city and its residents. Every aspect of the Rio Olympic Games concept has been designed to align with the strategy for the future of the city and country.
The 2014 World Cup will be the 20th FIFA World Cup, an international soccer tournament that is expected to take place between June and July 2014 in Brazil.
After 36 years, the competition will return to South America. While, it has been 64 years since it last visited what is known internationally as 'the soccer nation'.
It is the first time the World Cup is being held in South America since Argentina hosted, and won, the 1978 tournament.
Brazil will become the fifth country to have hosted the FIFA World Cup twice, after Mexico, Italy, France and Germany.
Acording to the Brazilian Constitution, the four official symbols of the Federative Republic of Brazil are the Flag of Brazil, the National Anthem, the Coat of Arms of the Republic and the National Seal.
After the proclamation of the Republic in 1889, a new Brazilian flag was created to represent the conquests and the historical moment for the country. Designed by Raimundo Teixeira Mendes and Miguel Lemos, with pictures by Décio Vilares, it was inspired in the Empire Flag, drawn by the French painter Jean Baptiste Debret. In the blue sky globe, the words "Order and Progress" was taken from the maximum formula of Positivism: "Love as a principle, order as a basis, and progress as aim", a tendency of thinking created by the French philosopher Auguste Comte.
Portuguese is the eighth most spoken language worldwide and the third among the Western countries, after English and Spanish. About 200 million people communicate through this language, officially adopted in eight countries: Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Guinea Bissau, Mozambique, Portugal, São Tomé and Príncipe and East Timor. It is also one of the official languages of the European Union, since Portugal joined the group.
The official language of Brazil is Portuguese which is spoken by almost all of the population and is virtually the only language used in newspapers, radio, television, and for business and administrative purposes. The exception to this is in the municipality of São Gabriel da Cachoeira where Nheengatu, an indigenous language of South America, has been granted co-official status with Portuguese. Brazil is the only Portuguese-speaking nation in the Americas, making the language an important part of Brazilian national identity and giving it a national culture distinct from those of its Spanish-speaking neighbors.
Brazilian Portuguese has had its own development, influenced by the Amerindian and African languages. As a result, the language is somewhat different, mostly in phonology, from the language of Portugal and other Portuguese-speaking countries. These differences are comparable to those between American and British English.
