Avianca Brasil recently announced that it will start offering daily Miami-São Paulo (GRU) nonstop flights, starting on June 23, 2017. The airline will use the Airbus A330-200 aircraft, which seats 238 passengers, 32 of which will be Business Class seats, while the rest will be in Economy.
The São Paulo-Miami route will be a red-eye flight. It has a scheduled departure at 11:55pm and a scheduled arrival at 7:25am, the following morning. The Miami-São Paulo route will also be a red-eye flight comprising a scheduled departure at 7:30pm and a scheduled arrival at 5:00am, the next morning. Flights are already available for booking at Avianca Brasil’s website.
With 22 destinations and 230 daily flights, Avianca Brasil is a busy airline within Brazil as 9.4 million passengers flew with the airline last year. However, most flights are within Brazil, though the airline is looking to change that.
Avianca Brasil currently only has one flight out of Brazil, and that is a daily flight to Bogota, Colombia. Along with adding the Miami-São Paulo route, Avianca Brasil will also start offering a São Paulo-Santiago route sometime in July.
In the United States, Miami International Airport has the most flights to Brazil. There are, on average, 71 weekly nonstop flights to the country where flyers can fly nonstop to eight cities within Brazil.
New routes from Avianca Brasil is certainly good news for anyone who wants to visit São Paulo or any other city in Brazil. The only airlines that currently offer direct flights to Brazil are LATAM, and Aeroméxico, so any new competition should, hopefully, lead to lower prices.
