Reliable Robotics and Azul Airlines announced an agreement to work towards the adoption of advanced automation systems in the Azul network. These automation systems will improve aviation safety, on-time performance and connectivity in South America. Azul has a fleet of over 175 aircraft serving more than 150 destinations globally with over 1,000 daily flights and is rapidly growing its cargo operations. Azul Conecta, Azul’s regional subsidiary, is one of the largest operators of Cessna 208 Caravans with a fleet of 27 aircraft serving 84 destinations within Brazil. Under this agreement, the companies will determine how to deploy Reliable’s advanced automation system into Azul Conecta’s Caravan operations in Brazil.

Flavio Costa, Technical Vice President of Azul Linhas Aéreas Brasileiras and President of Azul Conecta, commented: “Innovation is at the heart of Azul. This new philosophy of flying will bring even safer and more reliable service for air cargo and passenger flights, enhancing existing operations and enabling new routes and services across Brazil. Reliable Robotics is leading the industry to certify advanced automation systems, and their deep experience with the Cessna 208 Caravan is particularly relevant for our operations in South America.”

Reliable Robotics is working with FAA to certify its advanced automation system and commence commercial cargo operations in the United States. This collaboration will enable Reliable’s subsequent international expansion into South America where the Caravan is widely used.

Myles Goeller, Chief Business Officer of Reliable Robotics, said: “Advanced automation technologies increase safety and on-time performance, and enable airlines to deliver more services with their existing aircraft fleet and pilot workforce. Azul and Azul Conecta have a track record of innovation, and we are proud to work with them to lead the rollout of advanced automation in Brazil.”
