Customers can conveniently connect to Azul’s unrivaled domestic network when flying Alitalia into and out of Brazil
On 4 December 2019, Alitalia has signed a codeshare agreement with Azul Brazilian Airlines, the largest airline in Brazil by number of cities served. As part of this agreement, customers can conveniently connect to Azul’s unrivaled domestic network when flying Alitalia into and out of São Paulo (Guarulhos) and Rio de Janeiro (Galeão).
The benefits and convenience of a codeshare ticket include those of thru check-in and thru-baggage.
Under the agreement, the codeshared network will include 19 domestic Brazilian destinations served by Azul in connection with Alitalia services to/from São Paulo (Guarulhos) and Rio de Janeiro (Galeão):
Belém, Porto Seguro, Brasilia, Cuiabá, Belo Horizonte, Curitiba, Florianópolis, Fortaleza, Goiânia, Foz do Iguaçu, Ilhéus, Navegantes, Porto Alegre, Ribeirão Preto, Recife, Rio de Janeiro Santos Dumont, Salvador, Vitória and Campinas-Viracopos.
"Alitalia is always seeking new partnerships that provide our passengers with the best travel experience when flying to an increasingly larger number of destinations. This new cooperation agreement significantly enlarges our presence in Brazil, a key market which presents great growth opportunities for the airline, because of the significant presence of the Italian community, and where we operate 42 weekly inbound and outbound flights, thanks to the double-daily service to São Paulo and the daily service to Rio de Janeiro," said Fabio Maria Lazzerini, Chief Business Officer at Alitalia.
Codeshared flights are already available on sale systems.
