What’s new offshore Brazil ///

In March 2012, global travel management company Wings Travel Management, which specializes in oil and gas, corporate and marine travel, entered the Brazilian market throughout the acquisition of V7 Viagens travel-management company. “If you look at the map, Brazil is the place it is all happening,” said Wings COO Paul East. While Wings has a satellite office in Macae, the acquisition has positioned Wings to manage 24% of the crews running in Brazil currently. “The market, being so new, so vibrant, there’s so much unknown as to what is happening. The difference with Brazil being one of those emerging markets is that travel is not easy,” East said. “It’s easier to get to Rio de Janeiro than it is to get from Rio out to the rigs. The whole management becomes a completely different challenge.”
