The passenger terminal for the Recife Port (in Recife Antigo) is the first to be ready for the World Cup 2014. The space, designed to raise the level of reception for passengers, will be inaugurated on October 13th, when the cruise ship season starts. Over two-thousand tourists coming from Italy will disembark on the same day and will be able to enjoy a structure similar to an airport, with nine check-in counters, baggage carousels, boarding and deboarding areas, regulatory and supervisory organs, in addition to travel agencies and stores. Between October 2013 and April 2014, around 60 cruise ships will dock at the port.

Total investment was R$28.1 million, with R$21.8 million coming from the federal coffers. Similar set-ups will be coming to the ports of Fortaleza, Natal and Salvador. According to the new “Lei dos Portos”, the Recife Port terminal will be the first in the country to not be run by the State.  – Source One (PT), Two (PT), and Three (PT).
