Natal is behind Salvador and Fortaleza

The States of the Northeast of Brazil (the area of the coast with latitudes between the Equatorial Line and the Tropic of Capricorn) compete fiercely for tourists, both domestic and foreigner.

Infraero is a federal agency which controls most Brazilian airports (it is to Infraero that travelers pay the outrageously expensive Brazilian boarding tax); Infraero keeps statistics about the number and nationality of people who use the airports.

Infraero released statistics about international visitors in the airports of the Northeast in the period January-2006 to October-2006.
According to Infraero, the airport Luis Eduardo Magalhães, in Salvador had the highest number of foreign visitors, with 308.507 passengers; airport Pinto Martins, in Fortaleza, came second, with 218.491 passengers; airport Augusto Severo, in Natal, had 203.477 passengers; airport Gilberto Freire, in Recife, had 140.353 passengers; Maceió was next, with 21.024 passengers.
