Rio de Janeiro
We are very happy to see how, despite adversity, our country manages to rise up. Faced with new challenges, investors trust the future of Brazil and the results are new sources of employment and movement of the economy.
The Itapemirim Group started last Friday (May 21st) to sell tickets for its air operation, called ITA Transportes Aéreos. The company’s promise is to offer tickets at an “affordable price” and with great comfort, including more space between the seats and free baggage allowance.
The company will make an inaugural flight on June 29th, between Guarulhos and Brasília, with income going to charities and, on the following day, it starts its commercial operation.
Initially, the new airline will have five Airbus A320 aircraft and will run routes between eight cities (based on the first four):
Belo Horizonte-Confins (MG), Brasilia (DF), Rio de Janeiro-Galeao (RJ), São Paulo-Guarulhos (SP), Curitiba (PR), Porto Alegre (RS), Porto Seguro (BA) and Salvador (BA).
As of August 1st, 2021, other cities will be added to the network:
Recife (PE), Maceió (AL), Fortaleza (CE), Florianópolis (SC), Vitória (ES) and Natal (RN).
By June 2022, the company plans to expand its coverage and reach 35 destinations in Brazil, totaling 50 aircraft.
The forecast is that the company will reach the end of the year with a total of 20 planes of the same model and, during the first half of 2022, receive five more per month until completing 50.
