Brazil No-Fly Zones are an Irritant for Football Fans

Brazil’s air force is declaring the regions in the sky above its various stadia as no-fly zones. This is to prevent any chances of a terrorist attack from occurring on the occasion of the World Cup. 

There is the obvious proviso that the air force cannot shoot down a plane flying over the area (even if it is unauthorized). The chances of a mishap are too many to take that risky step. 

However, the Brazilian air force is currently negotiating with the authorities regarding changing this law which may cause a chink in the armor against terrorists and other insurgent elements of society. There are over eight airports where airliners will not be landing. 

They lie within the ambit of the no-fly zones. However, the main airports will remain open. The tragedy of the situation is however that already thousands of seats have been booked on flights that will have to be cancelled. 

Besides some three million Brazilians, 600,000 foreigners will land in Brazil for the World Cup. It will be a tough time for air traffic controllers at the airports. 

Therefore, the air force has agreed to lend many of its aircraft and bases for the sake of the dignitaries and luminaries attending the event. And the three dozen soccer teams are included in this welcome move by the air force. 

The press will be there in an avalanche of 200 journalists to cover the happening. Finally, Cristiano Ronaldo and his near and dear ones will be flown in on four luxury private jets. 

The whole scheme of directing air traffic is very complex. And when you add an unpredictable scenario where terrorist threats are rampant, the military, navy and air force can never be too careful. 

That is why these precautions are being taken. They are a necessary evil and have to be implemented no matter how inconvenient they might be to the fans.
