February 12, 2016 8:09 PM | Anonymous

Silver Airways has entered into an agreement with Brazilian carrier Azul in an effort to make it easier for travelers to fly between Tampa International Airport and Brazil.

The two airlines formed a new interline ticketing partnership, allowing travelers to buy a single ticket for flights to and from more than 90 cities that Azul serves throughout Brazil, and to Silver's destinations throughout Florida and the Bahamas.

The agreement gives Silver customers easier access to Azul’s destinations including Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Brasilia. “Customers can purchase one ticket and, for example, fly Silver Airways from Tampa to Fort Lauderdale, then Azul to Brazil,” explained Silver Airways spokesperson Misty Pinson.

Silver Airways President and CEO Sami Teittinen said the partnership will “provide customers with seamless travel options between Silver Airways' extensive Florida/Bahamas network and Azul’s” service throughout Brazil.

“The interline with Silver Airways will be important for our customers to connect in the United States,” said Marcelo Bento, Azul’s planning and alliances director. “As an airline with great regional power in Florida and Bahamas, Silver can also feed our flights to Brazil. This deal will amplify our presence in the international market and reinforce our brand outside of Brazil.”
