David Neeleman’s Brazilian Airline Azul Will Launch US Flights Next Year

Azul, the Brazilian lowfare carrier launched by JetBlue’s David Neeleman, will begin flights from Sao Paulo (Viracopos) to Ft. Lauderdale and Orlando in 2015, with flights to New York beginning sometime thereafter.

Azul serves more than 100 destinations in Brazil with a mix of Embraers and turboprops. The new service can launch when they take delivery of leased A330-200 aircraft.

The airline (perhaps not surprisingly) is in talks with JetBlue to codeshare on continuing flights from Ft Lauderdale and Orlando.
