A lot has a spoken about the poor preparations in Brazil for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Brazil were awarded the right to host the 2014 FIFA World Cup without any competition after it was decided that it was South America’s turn to host the prestigious world tournament. It has seen rumoured that the lack of competition has meant that Brazil have been pretty lazy in getting things going for the biggest tournament in the world.
The 2006 FIFA World Cup held in Germany has become the template and standard for the upcoming FIFA World Cup tournaments. Even though the 2010 FIFA World Cup was good, it was not good enough to match the standards set in Germany.
Just when it was looking that Brazil would also fail to meet these standards, or even have all the stadiums ready for a great World Cup, the local government has now sanctioned the funds to overhaul the three major airports within the country.
Transport infrastructure has been regarded as one of the keys areas for development with Brazil, as the present public transport infrastructure is simply not good enough to cope up with the local population itself. The Brazilian government has now sanctioned funds that will see work carried out in three major airports at total cost of around $ 15 billion.
São Paulo’s Guarulhos airport, Viracopos–Campinas airport, and Brasília airport are the three major airports that are set to get this huge funding. It was initially reported that around 10 airports out of the 13 would require major overhauling for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
Since 2003, passenger their traffic in the airport has increased almost 120 percent, which has meant that the current infrastructure is not able to cope up with the Brazilian population itself. The local population is around 300 million, who are expected to be the major travellers.
