SÃO PAULO, BRAZIL - The National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) has authorized the operations of Passaredo (based in Ribeirão Preto, SP) and MAP airlines (based in Manaus) in the city airport.

Under the decision taken on Wednesday, August 14th, allocating the 41 Avianca slots, MAP will operate 12, Azul 15, and Passaredo was left with 14, all of which will be at the times previously operated by Avianca Brasil on the main runway.
