Azores Airlines Tops 1 Million Passengers

SATA Group’s airline, Azores Airlines, has just passed the symbolic mark of one million passengers carried in 2023, around three months before 2022 and the scheduled date for this year.

According to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), Azores Airlines performed well above Europe and the rest of the world in passengers carried in 2022, showing a variation of 14.5% compared to 2019 (pre-pandemic year).

Contributing to this consistent increase in demand and preference was a growing effort by the company to offer more destinations and reinforce its capacity.

The carrier also launched a concerted set of operational and commercial initiatives, including the expansion of virtual interline agreements with airline partners that now present the Azores Airlines offer to the Azores on their respective booking platforms, greater availability of the online offer through its presence in global travel search engines, and, also, promotional actions developed throughout the year with tour operators and travel agents.
