The funny thing I noticed is that the airline is called TRIP (Transportes Regionais do Interior Paulista - Regional Transport of the São Paulo State interior) and the only destination in the State is CPQ!!
Has the name changed to just "TRIP"?

Quoting TR763 (Reply 4): Indeed, I never imagined an order such as this.
The main reason is because TRIP was bought by Caprioli Group in Brazil which has given the airline a financial boost. Caprioli Group is, for example, the owner of the rights to operate CPQ-CGH and GRU-CPQ shuttle services.
