Azul – the largest airline in Brazil by number of cities served and flight departures will begin operating the Rio-São Paulo shuttle service on 29 August 29.
Azul will fly 34 daily operations between the airports of Congonhas in São Paulo, and Santos Dumont in Rio de Janeiro, bringing more competition to the largest domestic market in Brazil and fourth largest in the world.
“We are very excited about the opportunity to offer the Azul Experience on flights between Rio and downtown São Paulo, adding to this market, our unique products such as live TV, free drinks and free snacks.
“We hope that this is just the first step in our expansion at the Congonhas airport. We look forward to be able to add even more routes and destinations in the future,” said John Rodgerson, Azul’s CEO.
