History

Whitejets is a non-regular charter airline that serves domestic and international destinations as contracted by a pool of tour-operators, centralized by Club Vip tur, CVC Turismo and Nascimento Turismo. Club Vip is owned by José Manuel Antunes of Whitejets and Omni Aviation of Portugal, controller of the Portuguese charter airline White Airways.[2]

Whitejets received its authorization to operate flights on March 5, 2010[3] and operated its first flight on June 12, 2010 between Rio de Janeiro-Galeão, Campinas-Viracopos and Varadero, Cuba.[4]

By the end of 2011 Whitejets planned to start operating regular flights on the route Rio de Janeiro-Galeão / São Paulo-Guarulhos / Recife, while maintaining its charter operations.[5] These plans however were never materialized.

On March 13, 2013, the airline announced that its name would change to POP Brasil and that as of April 16, 2013 it would start operating as a regular charter airline, pending on the necessary government authorizations.[6]

However, on September 23, 2013, the Whitejets single aircraft, an Airbus A320-214 registration PR-WTB, was returned to its owner, White Airways, making unsure the future for the airline. Furthermore, the project to operate scheduled flights and change its name to POP Linhas Aéreas has been also abandoned.[7]

Destinations

As of December 2012, Whitejets operates charter passenger services contracted by tour operators, usually departing from Campinas-Viracopos, Rio de Janeiro-Galeão and São Paulo-Guarulhos.[8]
