Avianca Brasil will launch a daily bellyhold service between Miami International Airport and Sao Paulo on 23 June, 2017.
The flights will be served by Airbus A330-200 aircraft and Miami will be the first US destination and only the second outside of Brazil for the airline, which has operated freighter service at MIA since 2015.
Miami-Dade County Mayor, Carlos A. Gimenez says: “It is especially encouraging to see increased service from our top international market of Brazil, which had a downturn in travel last year.”
Miami-Dade aviation director, Emilio T. González adds: “While we continue to pursue routes in untapped regions across the globe, we are also working to strengthen air service in our stronghold areas of Latin America and the Caribbean.”
Avianca Brasil is the fifth belly airline to schedule a launch into the Miami market this year joining Mexican carrier Volaris, Canadian airline First Air, transatlantic airline WOW Air and Are Lingus.
