Flybondi has more than 60 routes granted to fly to Brazil and said it is in the analysis stage of decicing which it will start first in the course of 2019.
The airline started flying in Argentina at the beginning of 2018 and already has an eight per cent market share and on 15 February it reached the one million passengers flown milestone.
Flybondi operates a fleet of seven Boeing 737-800s and has bases in Buenos Aires and Cordoba.
