Where: Brazil

Azul Linhas Aéreas Brasileiras may have a long formal name, but they fly only short routes, keeping to domestic flights within Brazil. The airline, started in 2008 by David Neeleman, former head honcho over at JetBlue, now may be looking toward 2015 for international expansion. Specifically, Azul is looking northward, for possibly flights between Brazil and the United States.

It sounds like the carrier is already hard at work leasing some Airbus A330s, as these will provide the needed range to make it up and over to the nifty fifty. 11 airplanes are due to eventually arrive to the fleet, with six of them ready to join Azul early next year.

It isn’t quite time to start typing in those credit card digits for reservations, but speculation over possible routes is already rampant. Top of the list seems to be south Florida, followed by New York. The paperwork isn't yet complete and details are fuzzy, but rest assured that we'll let you know more whenever we learn the latest.
