Discover Brazil with Condor and Azul Brazilian Airlines

Azul Brazilian Airlines and Condor now offer more travel options with connecting flights within Brazil. Thanks to the partnership, flight guests traveling from Germany to Fortaleza, Recife, Salvador and Rio de Janeiro can book a connecting flight with Azul to 22 additional destinations within the largest country of South America.

“Brazil is extremely popular among our customers. Therefore, we are pleased to expand our offering of flight destinations in Brazil beyond our own destination airports,” explains Jens Boyd, Group Head of Long-Haul at Condor. “Our passengers can now use the Condor destinations Fortaleza, Recife, Salvador and Rio de Janeiro as a springboard to the rest of Brazil.”

“Our partnership opens up completely new opportunities for customers of both airlines,” says Marcelo Bento, Network Planning and Alliances Director at Azul. “We fly to more destinations than all our competitors, resulting in numerous transfer options, particularly from our locations in north-western Brazil.”

In summer 2016, Condor will be flying from Frankfurt to all four Brazilian destinations with Boeing 767-300 aircraft. Flight guests are reminded that for connecting flights in Brazil, baggage for the outbound flight must be brought through customs personally before it is accepted by the partner airline. This process is not necessary during the return trip, however. Low-cost flights from Frankfurt to Recife, for example, are available at all-inclusive one-way fares starting at €299.99. To book Condor’s affordable offers, go to www.condor.com, visit your travel agent or call us at 01806/767767 (€0.20/call from the German landline network, €0.60/call from mobile phone networks).

Measured by number of flight destinations, Azul is Brazil’s largest airline. It operates a fleet of 130 aircraft, offering more than 800 flights per day to over 100 destinations. Roughly a third of all flights in Brazil are operated by the airline. For the past five years, Azul has received the SkyTrax Award as the best low-cost carrier in South America. In 2014, CAPA (Centre for Aviation) named Azul as the world’s best low-cost airline.
