Brazilian operator Azul continues to slowly expand its flight offerings after concluding domestic demand bottomed out in April.

However, those increases are occurring as the COVID-19 virus continues to spread rapidly in the country.

Despite the challenges Brazil continues to face in containing the virus, Azul’s chief revenue officer Abhi Shah recently told analysts and investors that demand in Brazil had bottomed during the second week of April 2020 “and we have seen a bounce back from that, which is very good,” he said.
