TAM Airlines doubles the number of overnight flights from New York to Sao Paulo

TAM Airlines (TAM Linhas Aereas) (Sao Paulo), part of LATAM Airlines Group, has just introduced seven weekly night frequencies between New York and São Paulo (Guarulhos). The new flight will double TAM’s overnight flights to Sao Paulo in August and replace the existing daytime flights JJ 8082 and JJ 8083.

The new flight JJ 8103 (New York – São Paulo/Guarulhos) will depart New York (JFK) at 10:00 p.m. (2200) and land in São Paulo at 8:50 a.m. (0850) with the return flight JJ 8102 departing São Paulo (Guarulhos) daily at 9:50 p.m.(2150) and arriving in New York (JFK) at 6:55 a.m. (0655).

The increase in these night services reflects customers’ preference for traveling overnight and arriving at their destinations in the early hours of the following day, either to participate in business meetings or to visit the city’s tourist attractions.

The new service will be operated by Boeing 767-300 aircraft (from LAN Airlines), whose interiors have been completely refurbished providing full-flat seats that recline 180o, as well as increased leg room in Business Class. Passengers in Business and Economy will also have access to individual on-board entertainment services in both cabins, with around 100 movies from diverse genres and TV series, and can listen to music and browse the duty free product catalog. Children can enjoy the exclusive entertainment package that consists of cartoons, movies and games.

The other seven night frequencies offered by TAM are currently operated by Boeing 777-300 aircraft under flight numbers JJ 8080 and JJ 8081. In line with the company’s objective of continuously improving its products, the Boeing 777-300 fleet will be refurbished starting in September (TAM is removing the first class section from the 777-300) and will be back in operation in March 2015 . During this period, the flights will be operated by TAM’s Airbus A330 aircraft.
