Azul to receive five Airbus A320neo more in the 1st quarter
Sao Paulo - Azul Linhas Aéreas will receive five Airbus A320neo until the end of March 2019. Two of them may be previously intended for the bankrupt Avianca Brazil.
In the last weeks of December, the Brazilian carrier received two Airbus A320neo, and one aircraft is still at the Airbus's Toulouse factory for final tests. It will join the fleet this month.

According to Aeroflap, the two Airbus A320neo are in the United States for repainting in Azul's colors and cabin reconfiguration.
