The fall in the value of the Real has influenced how Brazilians travel within Brazil

As the value of the Real has fallen against world currencies, particularly the US$, the cost of flights has gone up. As a consequence the Brazilian air travel market is suffering – this year more than 10% fewer flights are being taken by Brazilians – while the long distance bus companies are experiencing a mini boom: the number of long distance bus journeys this year is expected to increase by over 10% compared to 2012.
