Brazil's transport ministry authorized the airport serving São Carlos city in São Paulo state to receive international flights.
The move allows international flights exclusively for maintenance and repairs, and the airport cannot be used for international commercial flights.
São Carlos hosts a maintenance center for airline Latam.
Currently, aircraft coming from abroad for maintenance need to undergo a temporary admission process at an international airport before going to a maintenance center. Existing alternatives are Cumbica, Viracopos and Galeão airports. The procedure can take two to three days, generating costs for airlines.
