Paris will be the next international destination for Azul Linhas Aéreas. The Brazilian carrier confirmed on Wednesday the launch of the new non-stop route between Viracopos Airport, its main hub, and Orly Airport, in the south of the French capital. The first flight is scheduled for April 26th.

According to Azul, the flight between Viracopos and Paris will take just over 11 hours. The route will be operated daily on Airbus A350 aircraft with 334 seats, 301 in economy class and 33 in business class.

Flights from Brazil will depart at 11 pm, arriving in Orly at 3:30 pm. The return flight will depart at 10:15 pm, arriving in Campinas at 4:45 am (local time).

“France is the second largest international market for Brazil after Portugal and our customers have been asking us to fly there for a long time. Now, thanks to our modern and efficient A350s, we are pleased to add this important destination to our network”, said John Rodgerson, CEO of Azul.

The French capital will be the second destination in Europe served by Azul after Lisbon, in Portugal. The airline has also flown to Porto, but has not resumed the route so far.

Other international destinations of the company are Montevideo and Punta Del Este, in Uruguay, Fort-Lauderdale and Orlando, in the United States, and Curaçao, in the Caribbean.

Azul already offered its customers a direct flight between Viracopos and Orly between 2018 and 2019, when it had a codeshare partnership with Aigle Azur, a French airline that had David Neeleman, the founder of the Brazilian company, as one of its main shareholders.

The partnership between the two carriers was suspended in April 2019, at the request of Azul. Five months later, after unsuccessfully trying to go into administration, Aigle Azur filed for bankruptcy.
