TAM starts new flight today to Orlando


SAO PAULO, Brazil – Today TAM begins operation of its new daily service to Orlando, Florida. This is the airline’s 18th international destination, with flights also to New York and Miami.

The modern 210-seat Airbus A330 will be used, with 39 seats in executive class and 171 in economy.

The flight will depart daily from Guarulhos International Airport in Sao Paulo at 11:30 am (local time) and arrive in Orlando at 5:00 pm (local time). For the return trip, the flight will leave for Brazil at 6:50 pm (local time), arriving in Sao Paulo at 6:35 am (local time).

TAM currently has 18 weekly flights between Brazil and New York City, as well as 28 flights to Miami. All flights accept and offer connecting flights.

The availability of new destinations is part of the search for service excellence, one of TAM’s three pillars of performance, together with management and technical-operational excellence.
