RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – Amaszonas by Nella, the new brand resulting from the acquisition of Bolivian airline Amaszonas by Brazilian Nella Airlines, plans to resume flights to Brazil in September.
The airline has scheduled the resumption of flights between Santa Cruz de la Sierra and São Paulo/Guarulhos for September 15, with three flights per week, on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. On Sundays, the fourth frequency will be added in October, a fifth in November, and daily service between the two cities will resume in December.

This is the first time since its acquisition by Nella, the company will regularly fly to Brazil. In early August, the Bolivian group announced that the sale was the best solution after several attempts to save Amaszonas amid the pandemic crisis.
In recent months, the number of flights at the various Bolivian airlines has been significantly reduced. The government did not provide more vigorous assistance, so the remaining option to maintain operations was to transfer control.
