All You Can Fly in Brazil. For Less than US$ 300

Azul Airline from Brazil Brazilian airline Azul is offering a one-month passport deal that will take you all over the huge country of Brazil. The Passaporte promotion will allow you to fly anywhere Azul flies for one shockingly low fare, just US$ 285.

You are free to fly from October 15 to November 16 to any and all of the Azul destinations in Brazil. They include: Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Belo Horizonte, Campo Grande, Curitiba, Fortaleza, Maceió, Manaus, Maringá, Navegantes, Porto Alegre, Recife, Salvador, and Vitória.


There are a few restrictions: no Friday or Sunday flights, no flights October 31, November 2 or 3. But there is no waiting period. If there is a seat available when you want to fly, it's yours.

If this all sounds a bit reminiscent of JetBlue's Unlimited Flight Pass which just ended last week in the U.S., that's because both airlines are owned by São Paulo-born David Neeleman.

The U.S. version cost $599. At $285 for Azul's Passaporte, the price is definitely right.

To paraphrase an airline ad campaign, now you really are free to roam about the country. And what a country it is.

The actual name of the airline is Azul Brazilian Airlines, Azul Linhas Aéreas Brasileiras S/A, but you can just call them Blue – Azul.

They've only been operating since last December. Yet, Azul already has the third-largest share of the domestic market, behind TAM and Gol.

Domestic airline Azul flies a fleet of Brazilian-made Embraer aircraft.
