The Campinas-Buenos Aires route will have daily flights, departing from Viracopos in the morning. The operations will be carried out with the modern A320neo aircraft, which have an on-board entertainment system. With the opening of this new market, Campinas, which today is the largest connection center in Latin America for domestic flights, will have non-stop connections to 60 destinations, 4 of them international: Orlando and Fort Lauderdale, in the United States, Lisbon in Portugal, and Buenos Aires, Argentina.
