Azul, the largest airline in number of flights and destinations served, today announces the start of sales of the flight that will connect Curitiba with Montevideo, Uruguay. The new route, which debuts on October 31, will be carried out four times a week on Embraer E2 aircraft, with the capacity to transport up to 136 Clients.
Takeoffs will be at 12 noon from the capital of Parana, on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. And the return will be the same days, taking off from Montevideo airport at 3:10 p.m.
“Connecting Brazil with another international destination is a joy for Azul. We already have an extensive national network, which allows greater connectivity throughout the country, and offering more flight options to other countries is fuel so that we can take even more Clients to all possible destinations, and always providing the Blue experience so that they can carry out the best trips; says Fábio Campos, director of Institutional Relations at Azul.
“This route is very important to connect the people of Parana and all other Brazilians with South America. A recent study by Embratur showed that Paraná is one of the main gateways for foreign tourists in Brazil. We also recorded the second highest growth in the sector throughout the country in the first half of 2023. We want to increasingly consolidate this evolution," said Ratinho Junior, governor of Paraná. For Uruguay and the Ministry of Tourism it is extremely important to recover connectivity and above all increase it with regard to different parts of Brazil. This management has been working on promotion and the increase in Brazilians who choose Uruguay to vacation and rest is already reflected in the numbers. Therefore, today is an important day and one of great joy.
