History[edit]

The Passaredo bus transport company, owned by Viação Passaredo, started regional aircraft operations in 1995. Following a suspension of operations in April 2002, it restarted operations in 2004. It is wholly owned by Grupo Passaredo.[2]

From December 23, 2010 until July 31, 2014 Passaredo has had an operational partnership with Gol Linhas Aéreas, replacing an earlier similar agreement with TAM Airlines. However on August 1, 2014, Passaredo re-established an operational partnership with TAM.[4]

Passaredo applied to the Commercial Bankruptcy and Reorganization Court in Ribeirão Preto on 19 October 2012,[5] for the commencement of "judicial reorganization" proceedings pursuant to the New Bankruptcy and Restructuring Law of Brazil (Law 11.101).[6] Operations continue as normal.
