Azul’s first ATR72 flight received a wet welcome to Bauru.
- Azul, Brazil’s third-biggest domestic airline, has launched three new routes in the last week, adding two new destinations to its network. From its main base at Campinas-Viracopos (VCP) it has introduced double-daily flights to Bauru (JTC) using ATR72s, and double-daily flights to Londrina (LDB) using E-190s. The Londrina route is already served by Trip with two daily flights. Last year passenger numbers at Londrina airport rose by 31.3% to 961,902 making it one of the fastest-growing airports in Latin America. Azul has also decided to enter the very competitive Brasilia (BSB) to Belo Horizonte (CNF) market. Azul is starting with 18 weekly departures using an E190 but is competing against GOL (42 weekly departures), TAM (34), WebJet (12) and Avianca Brazil (7).
