Azul S.A., “Azul”, (B3: AZUL4, NYSE: AZUL), the largest airline in Brazil by number of cities served and flight departures, announces today its preliminary traffic results for February 2021.

Domestic passenger traffic (RPKs) increased 4.6% compared to February 2019 on a domestic capacity increase (ASKs) of 9.3%, resulting in a load factor of 78.6%.

“We began 2021 in a strong position, confirmed by our February traffic results. The next couple of months will be challenging, with weak seasonality and the second wave of the pandemic. Therefore, we are adjusting our service offering accordingly and will continue to monitor the situation. Still, Brazil is moving forward with its vaccination efforts, and we are confident we will gradually see improved health figures in the country as we are seeing elsewhere in the world”, said John Rodgerson, Azul’s CEO.
