Azul Linhas Aéreas Brasileiras is a Brazilian airline founded and approved in 2008. It is the third largest airline in Brazil in number of passengers, the second largest in terms of aircraft fleet and the largest in number of destinations offered, operating in 98 airports in Brazil and in 8 international ones.
In May 2012, Azul and TRIP announced a merger. TRIP was the largest regional airline in Latin America. The companies operated independently with Code Share, uniting their networks and on-board service. As a result, Azul began to have a larger market in the northern region and some regional airports, such as Pampulha Airport in Belo Horizonte, as well as having flights departing from Guarulhos International Airport.
The merger was approved by ANAC in November 2012. The resulting company remained with the Azul name and encompassed some of TRIP’s visual brands.
