Manufacturer will supply vehicles to attend the needs of transportation for higher volume of passengers expected in the World Cup 2014
Marcopolo has formed a partnership with Infraero to supply 23 vehicles of the brands Marcopolo and Volare, which will be used in main Brazilian airports such as Santos Dumont and Tom Jobim (Galeão), in Rio de Janeiro; Confins, in Belo Horizonte and Luis Eduardo Magalhães, in Salvador, during the period of the FIFA World Cup next year. The vehicles should meet the demands of extra transportation for the high volume of people expected during the months of June and July.
Each of the four airports will receive eight Marcopolo buses – one Paradiso 1800 Double Decker, one Viale BRT and six units of Viale BRS; and 15 Volare vehicles, models DW9 Executive and WL Limousine. The vehicles will be used by Infraero on passenger transfers.
According to Paulo Corso, director of commercial operations of Marcopolo, the partnership with Infraero will provide more comfort and convenience because passengers will be transported in the most modern and sophisticated buses ever produced in Brazil. "These are the most sophisticated vehicles of the sector in the country, and we believe it will collaborate to strengthen tourist’s positive image about Brazil," said the executive.

We will provide six units of Volare at Galeão airport, four units at Santos Dumont airport, three units at Confins airport and two in Salvador, "said the executive.
