Air Azul to change name, delays Lansing service

Air Azul (Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood) is delaying Boeing 737-800 (operated by Sun Country Airlines) service from Lansing to both Newark and Baltimore/Washington from June 2 to June 30. The company is also changing its name to avoid any confusion with another airline (jetBlue?) (a Metro already operates with Air Azul titles).

Charter airline Air Azul to expand on June 1

Air Azul (Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood) is expanding. The charter airline commenced flying on December 27, 2008 between Nashville and Somerset, KY with a Fairchild Swearingen Metroliner III. Flights are operated under the AOC of its parent Locair. Locair was established in 1996 as an on-demand cargo carrier with Metros. Now Air Azul is planning to operate large public charter flights starting on June 1 from Rockford (near Chicago) to both Newark (EWR) and Baltimore/Washington (BWI) with a leased Boeing 737-800 (possibly from Sun Country Airlines). The following day it will start charter flights from Lansing to both EWR and BWI also with a 737-800. The company is also planning to also operate to Melbourne, FL, South Bend and Toledo.
