Brazil's airports won't be ready for 2014 World Cup

Brazil’s Institute for Applied Economic Research announced most Brazilian airports being upgraded for the 2014 Soccer World Cup won’t be ready in time which is likely to cause serious transport delays (Reuters/AFP, 15-Apr-2011). Renovation work in 10 of the 13 airports to be used during the tournament will not be completed in time unless there are major changes in investment plans made by Brazil’s airport authority. CEO of IATA Giovanni Bisignani warned Brazil will never reach its full potential without major changes in its aviation policy. Rio de Janeiro International Airport will be ready on time.
