Azul To Announce Widebody Order

Brazilian carrier Azul Linhas Aereas is to announce an order for Airbus' widebody aircraft today, Reuters has reported. The order would allow the Brazilian airline to enter the international market and would mark its first purchase of widebody aircraft. The order is yet to be confirmed or announced, but Azul has planned a press briefing for later today (April 23). Azul currently flies 50- to 70-seat ATR turboprops and 120-seat EJets and it has not placed an order with either Boeing or Airbus to date.
