It is an honour to be launching today a new blog (its preparation has kept us busy for the last six months): D Airfare. Our main goal is to help you find the best possible airfare to fly to Brazil or within Brazil.
To achieve our goal, the blog combines two types of entries:
- news items on anything related to flying on Brazil, with a special emphasis on flight deals and promotions run by the airlines, and the opening of new routes.
- texts prepared with the foreign readers of the blog in mind, explaining issues and topics related to flying in Brazil.
Although our focus will be Brazil, the basic concepts behind the purchase of a plane ticket are universal. We hope our readers will benefit from what they learn at the blog and apply this newly-acquired knowledge to the purchase of tickets elsewhere in the world.
Along with D Airfare we are launching D Vuelos, its Spanish-language sibling. The contents of both blogs will be very similar, although the former will have a bias towards issues of interest to English-speaking readers whereas the latter will concentrate on issues of interest to Spanish-speaking travellers.
Both blogs are the result of a partnership between Rodrigo Purisch, Brazilian, author of Aquela Passagem! and an expert on commercial aviation in Brazil, and myself, who as well as this blog you are reading looks after Accommodation in Brazil, De viaje a Brasil, Blog de São Paulo, and Alojamiento en Brasil . Rodrigo and I understood that flying is an essential part of travelling, even more so in a gigantic territory such as Brazil. We decided to join forces and expertise with the aim of helping other travellers. We do so from our position of independence from the airlines and the tourist industry.
Every week I’ll publish here a summary of the entries published at D Airfare. In the meantime, go and have a look. I’ll leave you with a selection of the top entries published on the blog before its official launch. Before I forget, we are still in beta as we hope to put some final touches to the layout of the blog shortly. The content is fully operational, though.
