Avion Express Brasil, the Brazilian subsidiary of global aviation leader Avion Express, is nearing the final stages of obtaining its Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC) from the Brazilian National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC).

This development supports Avion Express’s ambitious expansion into the dynamic Latin American market.

It will be specifically targeting Brazil’s booming ACMI (Aircraft, Crew, Maintenance, and Insurance) sector.

Approaching AOC Completion

Avion Express Brasil has successfully navigated Phase 2 of the AOC certification process, receiving approval from ANAC.

This paves the way for Phase 3, where submitted manuals and documentation will be meticulously reviewed.

Anticipating feedback in the coming weeks, the airline is now confident of completing Phase 3. It now aims to obtaining its final AOC approval by the end of 2204.

This green light will allow Avion Express Brasil to launch ACMI operations in the fourth quarter. This will mark a significant milestone in their Brazilian journey.
