The August sun shone brightly for Azul

One of the leading airlines of Brazil and the largest by the number of cities served, Azul has released its latest figures for the month of August. 

Consolidated passenger traffic (RPKs) increased 21.5% compared to August 2017 on a capacity increase (ASKs) of 20.3%. As a result, load factor was 82.4%, just 0.8 percentage points higher than August last year. Domestic load factor was 81.2% and international was 85.7%.

"In addition to the healthy demand environment we are seeing, we have recently received our 17th A320neo, the key driver of our margin expansion plan going forward. We are just at the beginning of our fleet transformation process and I couldn't be more excited", says John Rodgerson, Azul's CEO.
