MILITARY AIRPORTS AVAILABLE: The AFP reported Brazil Sports Minister Aldo Rebelo said that the country will make its military airports "available for the team planes of the World Cup participants." Rebelo: "If team delegations use military airports, this will take a lot of pressure off civil airports." Rebelo called "predictions of chaos at Brazilian airports during the World Cup 'nightmare prophecies.'" He pointed out that during recent Carnival celebrations in Rio de Janeiro and Salvador, "those cities hosted approximately twice as many tourists as they will welcome during the World Cup" (AFP, 3/18).
