Much more if we compare the forecasts that the Group faced in 2017 and now 2018. Last year the company had estimated a growth of only 1% in global traffic. For this year the estimated traffic growth in all destinations would be between 5% and 7%. This year's projections for international passengers show an increase of between 6% and 8%, higher than the 4% projected for 2017. Brazil's passenger growth would also be between 6% and 8% and for Spanish-speaking countries between 5% and 7%. One thing to keep in mind is that last year there was no growth forecast in the latter market. In terms of profitability, the airline expects to increase its operating margin globally by between 7.5% and 9.5% this year, compared to 6% and 8% last year.
