JetBlue to offer more destinations in Brazil

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

jetblue tailfinsJetBlue is expanding its existing partnership with Azul Brazilian Airlines through a unilateral codeshare agreement, subject to government approval.

Azul will place its “AD” code on JetBlue flights between multiple destinations and JetBlue’s focus cities in Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood (FLL) and Orlando (MCO). From both Florida gateways Azul operates nonstop service to the airline’s hub at São Paulo, Brazil’s Viracopos International Airport (VCP).

Once approved, customers purchasing a codeshare itinerary will benefit from having a single ticket that includes both Azul and JetBlue-operated flights as well as conveniences on their day of travel like one-stop check-in and baggage transfer.

“We’re pleased that customers booking Azul travel will be able to benefit from convenient connections through JetBlue’s growing list of destinations from our Florida focus cities,” said Robin Hayes, president and CEO, JetBlue.

Azul has become the fastest growing airline in Brazil since beginning operations in December 2008 and currently has the largest airline network in the country in terms of cities served, with service to more than 100 destinations. The airline has recently expanded operations with selected nonstop service to the United States.

Azul operates daily services to Orlando and Fort Lauderdale/Miami with newly retrofitted A330 aircraft. These aircraft feature 20 lie-flat business class seats with direct aisle access. In addition, these aircraft have 110 Economy Premium seats with increased legroom for additional comfort and space. All seats have individual inflight entertainment on demand, power outlets and each customer is treated to Azul’s international flagship meal service.
