Amazon and Azul Linhas Aereas Brasileiras have signed an agreement to provide northern Brazil with greater package delivery capacity.

Using Azul’s network, Amazon consumers in cities like Manaus and Belem will receive orders within 2 days, and consumers in cities including Macapa within 3 days.

The project with Azul Cargo will see the airline transport packages from the Amazon Fulfilment Centre in Cajamar to cities in the north.

Alex Cristiano de Paula, Head of Air Transport in Brazil for Amazon, says, “At Amazon, we seek to provide the best experience to customers from the North to the South of the country, preserving the safety and well-being of all people involved in the operation and delivery of packages. These are also important values for Azul, and we understand that having the services of the company with the largest number of flights in Brazil is another important step in our business strategy.”

Izabel Reis, Director of Azul Cargo, adds, “Azul is the most punctual airline in the world, and we will work with the same efficiency to deliver Amazon packages in the northern region of the country, with agility, quality and low cost.”
