ITA Airways announced a new codeshare agreement with Azul – Linhas Aéreas Brasileiras, Brazil’s largest airline in terms of number of cities served.

This agreement, effective June 10, will provide the best connection options to major Brazilian cities for the Italian airline’s customers.

Lufthansa aims for 20% stake in ITA Airways.

ITA Airways will place its code on domestic flights operated by Azul in eight strategic domestic markets: Belém, Cuiabá, Santos Dumont (RJ), Porto Alegre, Recife, Juazeiro do Norte, Confins and Curitiba, connecting via São Paulo with 5 weekly frequencies in June and July, which will become daily as of August.

These new connections will allow ITA Airways to start its expansion in South America, which has always been one of the preferred vacation destinations for Italians, as well as a very important market along with the United States for business and cargo traffic.
