Whales Coast


The route to Teixeira de Freitas (TXF), operated by Azul Airlines from December 21th to February 1st, will make easier the arrival at important destinations at the Whales Coast. A twice weekly service will be available on Mondays and Fridays.
The region is located in the extreme South of Bahia’s coast and it includes cities as Prado, Alcobaça and Caravelas. That is the spot where is the Abrolhos Marine National Park, considered a maritime sanctuary. The park also includes the Parcel dos Abrolhos, where typical coral formations of the region may be seen.
Azul Airlines will be also operating the route to Cuiabá (CGB), other twice weekly service – on Fridays and Sundays. This is the third destination from Salvador Bahia Airport to Brazilian center-western region. The other ones are Brasília (the capital of Brazil) and Goiânia.


The new international route of the season will connect Salvador de Bahia to Rosario (ROS), in Argentina. This will be the first time a direct flight will link those two cities. The route is a weekly service (on Saturdays) operated by Gol Airlines from December 1st. This is a strategic connection, once Argentinians are the majority of the foreigners who comes to the state of Bahia through Salvador Bahia Airport.
“Salvador is the biggest unserved market (without direct connection) from Rosario. We believe that this new route will provide a better service to the demand between these two important touristic cities of South America”, says Julio Ribas, Salvador Airport’s CEO.
The historical city of Rosario is 300 km apart from Buenos Aires, the Argentinian capital. Rosario is the third most populous city in the country, besides being an important railway terminal and a navigation terminal. The personalities Che Guevara and the soccer player Lionel Messi were born there.
“One of VINCI Airports goals is to increase the air traffic at the airports under its management. This commitment is supported by our relationship with over than 250 airlines companies at the 44 airports around the world in our network, besides the implementation of an incentives program to develop new routes”, highlights Mr. Ribas.
