Who Is FlyAzul, Argentina?

Tue Jun 21, 2005 5:30 am

Through a websearch I came across the airline FlyAzul in Argentina. They already seem to have as reservation system (Radixx).

http://www.flyazul.com/index.html

The picture on the website looks as one in my FS....

Does anyone from Argentina know something about them ?

Hi Chiguire! Good to see you posting again with more frequency  Smile


Now... to the topic.

FlyAzul is an "airline" created by Mr. Martín Varsavsky, an argentine millionaire/enterpreneur in Spain. This guy, wants to create this airline due to the demise of A4s network and deal with the government since the "narcovalijas" deal blew up right in the face of everyone. (in fact, he wanted to create it long ago, but A4s troubles has gotten him to speed things up. Several A4 exec do NOT want him to start it and will do everything to stop him)
FlyAzul is a new airlines, so far, to my knowledge there's NO airpline registered to them nor leased, although Mr. Varsavsky (according to Marcos [Marambio]) wants or has high intentions of leasing an Air Atlanta Icelandic 747-200 due to it's cheapness compared to other aircraft (I'd prefer to see A340s).
That is what we know so far.
That modded picture in their site looks like an AR 742 or A4s 742 taking off and repainted with MS Paint  Wink.

P.S.: If you read the "Finally LAN Argentina" post by Kavanagh, you'll find a link to an article I've found on InfoBAE two or three weeks ago regarding FlyAzul.

Cheers! wave

Hola Gastón,

thank you for the information. So there still seems to be a lot of movement in aviation in Argentina.
The reservation system Radixx already shows FlyAzul as their customer:

Hola a todos,

the painting on that 742 is really disgusting! How can you make such a beautiful aircraft look so ugly?! Hands all over the place? que asco!

Gaston, do you have any idea on possible date for begining operations? Will it start only if A4 finally goes under or does Varsavsky want to start in anyway?

ps: che, nadie le da bola al Buenos Aires meeting  Sad
