On Wednesday (14), Azul Linhas Aéreas’ first Airbus A350-900XWB landed at Confins airport in Belo Horizonte. The aircraft arrived from France, where it had been since the end of August.

The Airbus A350 will receive the Brazilian registration PR-AOY in Belo Horizonte. Subsequently, the aircraft will be transferred to Campinas, the company’s base, to advance in the model inclusion process.

Initially, as announced by AEROIN, the A350 will be used on domestic flights for crew training, with possible destinations such as Manaus, Recife, Belém and Fortaleza. By the end of the year, international flights will begin.
