The company continues it´s policy of return their F-100´s, with a total of 13 in 2004.

Looks like TAM management team is doing a superb job over there, what could happen if the game was just a bit more fair, no government hands, no RG help etc etc. anyway, cheers up to TAM, the best Brazilian carrier and becoming one of the worlds best.

My cheers to TAM and to Mr.Rolim Amaro, who created a new concept in Brazilian aviation, too bad he left us.

as for airlines around the world, how many will report profits and how many will have profits of USD120milion?!?!
Tam managers did a superb job, and Mr. Marco Bologna is proving that a guy from the financial market can do well in air services.

GOL is expected to report 2004 exercise in the next weeks, and if things go as well as 2003, we´ll see a great outcome too.

VIVA TAM !!! Flew Transportes Aereos Marilha last may /june from CDG to GRU then EZE-GRU and GRU- CDG. What else do I have to say apart the fact its definitely one of my favorite airlines with great A 330's, great service, and too bad they don't fly to more cities in Europe.

I love you TAM

Let's hope the announced profits will make TAM more aggresive and drive its international expansion plan!

Nice TAM!!! They must charge very high fares b/c those kinds of profits with a 66% load factor are not easy to get....

Hi RootsAir.
TAM changed its name some years ago. You're right, TAM started as Transportes Aéreos Marilia, but now they're just TAM Linhas Aéreas.

Not to mention that with almost 14 million pax/year consolidates TAM as the second biggest airline in South America (only behind Varig).

Quoting VRG772 (reply 8):
You're right, TAM started as Transportes Aéreos Marilia, but now they're just TAM Linhas Aéreas.


To me more precise: During some time TAM operated under two airlines in Brazil: Transportes Aereos Marilia (GG), and Transporte Aereos Meridionais (JJ). GG was focused on domestic regional, short-distance flights, and JJ on domestic flights with long distance.

Marialia is the name of the city, in the interior of Sao Paulo state, in which TAM started its operations and its first flights where from Marilia to Sao Paulo (CGH) as a small regional airline.

As pointed out above, now TAM has only one name: TAM Linhas Aereas Brasileiras.

TAM also has a subsidiary in ASU, Paraguay called TAM Mercosur (PZ, Transportes Aereos del Mercosur). PZ flies to Assunción, Ciudade Del Leste, Punta Del Leste, Montevideo, Santa Cruz de La Sierra, Cochabamba, São Paulo, Curitiba, Foz do Iguaçu, Santiago e Buenos Aires.
