- Azul Airlines started Orlando (MCO) flights from Belo Horizonte (CNF) on 16 November, adding to the airline’s existing services to the US destination ‒ a daily Sao Paulo Viracopos operation. The 6,677-kilometre route will be flown thrice-weekly, using the airline’s 272-seat A330-200 fleet. From 14 December, the service will be expanded to a daily frequency. The route currently has no incumbent airline operating the city pair. See how Orlando Airport’s FTWA compares to others from around the world.
