TAM Airlines, member of LATAM Airlines Group, announced its nonstop service between Miami and Fortaleza, the capital of Ceara, that will launch on May 31, 2014 and operate on Saturdays.
With this nonstop flight, Fortaleza will serve as a strategic location in TAM’s network for passengers traveling to Northeastern Brazil.
Tourism travel is strong in Fortaleza and caters to different types of travelers – from those who prefer to relax on the beach and explore the local markets, to those seeking adventure and extreme sports, such as kite surfing and hang gliding, or those who want to discover the beautiful landscapes of the state’s countryside. The new flight is also expected to stimulate Fortaleza’s economic development, which today is known for the production of fruits, wines and fabrics, as well as for its shrimp farming, fishing, and lobster fishing.
TAM connects Miami to six Brazilian cities: Belem, Belo Horizonte/Confins, Brasilia, Manaus, Rio de Janeiro/Galeão and São Paulo/Guarulhos. TAM passengers can travel to Brazil from Miami, Orlando and New York (JFK) and many other cities in the US through a codeshare agreement with partner airlines.
