Azul-TRIP merger to keep Azul brand, regulatory approval expected by end of 2012

Azul and TRIP will maintain the Azul brand name together with a new logo that includes references to the TRIP brand, according to TRIP founder José Mario Caprioli and as reported by panrotas.com.br. Mr Caprioli cited the greater awareness and market penetration of the Azul brand as reasons to maintain it, with future aircraft deliveries to display the new livery. The two carriers will reportedly begin a codeshare agreement until the merger receives regulatory approval from the Brazilian Administrative Council for Economic Defense and the National Civil Aviation Agency, which is expected by year-end 2012 (Dow Jones Newswires, 30-Aug-2012).
