“At Amazon, we seek to provide the best experience to customers from the north to the south of the country, preserving the safety and well-being of all people involved in the operation and delivery of packages,” said Alex Cristiano de Paula, Amazon’s head of air transport in Brazil.
“These are also important values for Azul, and we understand that having the services of the company with the largest number of flights in Brazil is another important step in our business strategy. We want to guarantee deliveries with the best possible performance and schedule.”
“Azul is the most punctual airline in the world, and we will work with the same efficiency to deliver Amazon packages in the northern region of the country, with agility, quality and low cost,” said Izabel Reis, Ddrector of Azul Cargo.
Elsewhere, Azul has signed a firm order for three A330-900 which will allow it to further expand its international network and complement its existing A330 operations, bringing the airline’s total fleet of A330neo aircraft to eight.
“We are delighted to have secured three more next-gen Airbus widebody aircraft for the upcoming years. This reaffirms our position as the airline with the most modern fleet in the region, with 70 percent of our capacity coming from fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly aircraft,” said John Rodgerson, CEO of Azul.
