Avianca Brazil, the Star Alliance Brazilian member, has announced a series of news items for the market. In line with the company’s international expansion plan, Avianca Brazil will open another daily and direct flight to Miami and its third between Guarulhos (São Paulo) and Santiago (Chile) airports. On domestic flights, besides the operation in Vitória, which started in April, the company will offer flights to and from Belém, including new service in Maceió, Recife, Fortaleza and Salvador, providing passengers with more scheduling flexibility and additional connections with international flights from Avianca and from other Star Alliance members.
Ticket sales for the new flight between São Paulo and Miami begin in April. It will be a daytime flight, which begins to operate in December, with departures from São Paulo-Guarulhos International Airport, and Miami International Airport. The company’s first route to this destination was launched in June 2017 and has been a great success among Brazilians.
The second flight to Miami meets the great demand of customers who travel on business, and especially those looking for good entertainment and shopping options, as the city is known as a favorite destination among Brazilians. An Airbus A330-200 aircraft will fly that route, offering two classes of service: business (executive) with 32 seats that recline up to 180 degrees and a 1-2-1 seating configuration; and economy, configured comfortably with 2-4-2 row seats.
The company has also just announced its third daily flight between São Paulo and Santiago, Chile, scheduled to begin operating on June 22. Tickets can be purchased through Avianca or via travel agents. The flight will utilize two types of aircraft: the Airbus A330-200, with a 2–class cabin configuration, and the Airbus A320, with a single class.
“This is a very important moment for us, for it represents one step closer to achieving our international expansion plan. The two announcements come in the wake of a year full of accomplishments, since in 2017, we started this expansion of flights beyond national borders, with the first flights to Miami and New York, Santiago (Chile) and Bogota (Colombia). The demand for our products has proven to be quite positive, which has allowed us to evaluate and invest more and more in new frequencies and destinations, offering extra flight schedules and connections,” said Frederico Pedreira, President of Avianca Brazil.
Expansion throughout Brazil
Avianca Brazil has dedicated special attention to its national routes, with the intent to offer more connections to travelers from all parts of the country. In that context, in April, the company started to offer regular and direct flights between São Paulo and Vitória and, in June, it will inaugurate two flights to Belém, with departures from São Paulo and Brasilia.
Throughout the year, Avianca Brazil will offer additional flights in several locations, in particular at Guarulhos International Airport, where the company will increase its flight connections by 60 percent. Among these operations are: a second daily flight to Maceió, the addition of a fifth flight to Recife, a fifth flight to Fortaleza, an eighth flight to Salvador and two new direct flights to Rio de Janeiro–Galeão International Airport, totaling six daily flights on this route.
