BRA (Brasil Rodo Aéreo) Transportes Aéreos was a short-life Brazilian low-fare airline based in São Paulo, Brazil, which used to operate both domestic and international scheduled services, as well as charter flights. Its main base was São Paulo/Guarulhos International Airport.[1] BRA was the third largest airline in Brazil with 4.19% of the domestic Brazilian market as of August 2006 .

On 6 November 2007 BRA requested the National Civil Aviation Agency to suspend all of its flights starting on 7 November and to leave all of its 1,100 employees under previous notice, a mandatory notice of termination of employment.[2][3]

The airline was established and started operations in 1999. It was formed as a domestic charter airline Brasil Rodo Aéreo by Panexpress Viagens e Turismo and transformed itself into a low-fare airline from March 2006 rebranded as BRA Transportes Aéreos[1][4] In July 2007 BRA had started a code-share agreement with OceanAir increasing substantially their domestic destinations.

In 2009 the airline was back in operations with charters flights. The airline had a solo Boeing 737-300 ex-Gol Airlines, but it was sold to Puma Air, a Brazilian airline that started operating jets in 2010.

On June 18, 2009 BRA had its authorization to operate non-regular passenger renewed for one year by the Brazilian Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC).[5] Therefore, BRA operates flights on behalf of other airlines or parties, as contracted.


BRA Transportes Aéreos operates only non-regular passenger services on behalf of other airlines or parties, as contracted.
