Azul Airlines has hired a team of consultants to support its initiatives to minimize the impact of the COVID-19 crisis, which will also help the company to strengthen and prepare for the new economic environment after the end of the pandemic.
The engagement of the consultants, according to Azul, is consistent with the measures already disclosed, which include the reduction of the network, salary cuts and the launch of an unpaid leave program, with the participation of more than ten thousand crew members, as well as suspension of aircraft deliveries in 2020.
The company chose Galeazzi & Associados, a business consulting company, which had already been working on the development of a strategic growth plan for Azul Cargo Express, Azul’s cargo unit.
To support Azul’s fleet plan strategy and its relationship with aircraft manufacturers and leasing companies, the company hired Plane View Partners, aviation consultants. The law firms Pinheiro Neto and TWK will assist Azul in business negotiations.
