A federal judge has banned three types of large passenger jets from using Brazil's busiest airport due to safety concerns, a move that could snarl traffic and cause delays across Latin America's largest country.

Beginning Thursday, Fokker 100s, Boeing 737-800s and Boeing 737-700s will no longer be able to use Sao Paulo's Congonhas airport, according to an injunction signed by Judge Ronald de Carvalho Filho, court officials said Tuesday.
