The connection was brought about by the Ceara State Tourism Department through the Draft Bill 155/2013 for the ICMS tax (state VAT) on jet fuel, after the approval by the state legislature. It reduced ICMS tax (state VAT) on jet fuel from 30% to 12%, applicable for all domestic flights for Companies that has also regular direct international flights departing from this airport. Thus, the state of Ceara stands out even more as a tourist destination for the region.

In order to offer passengers increased comfort and shorter flight times and energize international tourism between the Argentinian capital and Brazil's Northeast, the new flights will take place on Saturdays. Flight times and frequencies are shown in the table below:
