Azul launches new routes from Campo Grande to Cuiaba and Maringa
Azul has launched a regional route between two state capitals in the western, inner part of Brazil. As of 27 February, the low-cost airline flies six times weekly between Campo Grande (CGR), the capital of Mato Grosso do Sul, and Cuiabá (CGB), capital of Mato Grosso. The 550-kilometre route is operated with the airline’s 118-seat E-195 aircraft, competing with Avianca Brazil’s twice-daily and GOL’s daily flights as well as TRIP’s five weekly operations. The same day, the airline also connected Maringá (MGF) in the south of the country with Campo Grande, a route also operated six times weekly with the same aircraft type. Competition comes from TRIP’s also six flights a week.
