Azul, the largest airline in Brazil by number of flight departures and cities served, and Avianca Holdings (AVH), one of the largest airline holding companies in Latin America headquartered in Colombia, have announced today an interline agreement, resulting in greater connectivity to customers of both airlines. The companies are now selling tickets jointly for flights between their route networks, allowing customers to travel with one ticket, check-in once, and to check bags through their final destination.
Customers on Avianca Holding's routes into Brazil can enjoy access to the largest portfolio of destinations of any domestic airline in Brazil, with access to more than 100 destinations. Azul customer's in turn have convenient access to Avianca's impressive network in Latin America, the Caribbean and beyond.
"This agreement with Avianca Holdings will be very important in strengthening our international presence, especially presenting Avianca's Colombian service to our clients who want to explore Brazil. Likewise, our clients can take advantage of the convenience of purchasing their tickets and issuing their boarding passes just one time, in addition to having access to several international destinations operated by our new partner," Marcelo Bento Ribeiro, Alliance Director at Azul said.
