Panel SA: Airlines estimate loss of BRL 15 million after chaos in Congonhas


The chaos caused by the incident with the small plane in Congonhas, this Sunday (9), triggered losses of at least R$ 15 million, according to the first estimates by Abear (an association that brings together companies such as Latam and Gol).

The number can still grow, says Eduardo Sanovicz, president of Abear.

Asked by the SA Panel about the payment of losses generated by the problem that led to the cancellation of hundreds of flights, Infraero states that “after any incident or accident, a detailed analysis must be carried out for subsequent actions”.

The sector is still evaluating the measures it should adopt to seek compensation.

The chaos began early Sunday afternoon when a small plane had one of its tires blown as it passed the main runway at the airport. All the flights of the day suffered some kind of alteration and the runway was closed for more than nine hours.
