Azul celebrates first flight in Rio-São Paulo “air bridge”

Azul CEO John Rodgerson personally attended a ceremony in Congonhas, the urban airport of São Paulo, to launch the company’s first flight of the heavily trafficked “air bridge” shuttle between Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. Amid decorative balloons and with a band playing Brazilian music, Mr. Rodgerson boasted that “we thought nearly 11 years to enter this market.” The executive later helped serve refreshments to passengers and asked their impressions. The company will use Embraer E195 jets carrying 118 passengers in the route.
