Air transport loses space in Brazilian exports and imports

The share of the airline sector in shipments and purchases of more expensive goods from other countries has fallen in recent years. A study by the National Industry Confederation (CNI) shows that the percentage of goods transported by planes fell from 18-7% in 2000 to 11.1% in 2018. It is a reflection of the increase in exports of basic products, such as agricultural products, which are exported mainly by sea, but also of the decrease in the sale of industrial goods.
