Passaredo launches new route from Curitiba to Cascavel
- On 25 March, Passaredo Linheas Aereas launched new service connecting Cascavel (CAC) and Curitiba (CWB), which both are located in the south-Brazilian state of Paraná. The airline, which operates a fleet of 15 ERJ145 aircraft, offers six weekly frequencies on the route, but faces competition from TRIP, which currently serves the market with 22 weekly flights. The 440-kilometre route to Cascavel is Passaredo’s third nonstop service from Paraná’s capital, and its launch, which was initially scheduled on 12 March, had to be postponed owing to ANAC temporarily withdrawing its authorization. Passaredo and TRIP are currently the only airlines to operate scheduled services from Cascavel.
