Azul Airlines flights & tickets

Known affectionately as just ‘Azul’, Azul Brazilian Airlines is one of Brazil’s flag carriers. It’s the baby of David Neeleman, the founder of JetBlue Airways, who launched the new airline at the end of 2008. The airline follows JetBlue’s “no-frills chic” model, offering cheap flights with a difference. The name was chosen during a contest, narrowly pipping ‘Samba’ to the post. Azul flies to over 100 destinations, including a few underserved markets, making it a great choice for travellers who want to see a lot more of Brazil. In 2012 they bought the regional airline TRIP, and in May 2014 the companies merged fully.

Passengers flying on Azul Extra Business Class are allowed up to three checked bags, while Economy fliers are allowed up to two.Excess baggage is charged a penalty fine per kilo. Excess baggage such as sports equipment falls into your 50lbs (23kg) weight limit, so be careful.

This is highly encouraged as passengers can save 50% in fees by purchasing ahead of time versus at the check-in desk. Standard prices are as follows: 1 extra baggage: US$ 95.00, 2 extra baggage: US$ 190.00, 3 extra baggage: US$ 285.00. Customers should also note that refunds on extra baggage are not allowed for any reason.

Passengers on Azul Air should take advantage of the company’s complimentary shuttle service at the airport. Buses run through several routes in Sao Paulo (Interior), Sao Paulo Capitol, and Parceiros.
