Total Linhas Aéreas S/A is an airline based in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, founded in 1988. It operates cargo and charter services.

History[edit]

The airline has its origins in 1988 as air taxi company called Total Aero Taxi, owned by Grupo Empresarial Rota.

In December 1994 Total was sold to Transportadora Sulista S/A, a group specialized in road transportation. It is from this time that dates the letter S that can be seen on its logo.

In 1996 Total started operating as a regular regional air carrier with authorization for passenger and cargo transportation, operating its own flights and also on behalf of other Brazilian airlines such as Transbrasil.[1]

In 1999 Total participated with Interbrasil STAR in the creation of a shuttle service between Rio de Janeiro-Santos Dumont and Belo Horizonte-Pampulha using mostly the ATR-42 of Total.[2]

On Nov 13, 2007 TRIP Linhas Aéreas and Total Linhas Aéreas agreed to merge, and on May 2008, after approval by the National Civil Aviation Agency of Brazil, the merger was concluded. According to this agreement, all passenger services were transferred to TRIP Linhas Aéreas whereas charter and cargo flights remained under the brand Total Linhas Aéreas.

On May 2012, days before the announced purchase of TRIP Linhas Aéreas by Azul Brazilian Airlines[3][4] Trip and Total were separated. However Total decided to continue with only cargo and charter flights operations.

Presently Total operates four ATR42-500 for regular charter flights, particularly for Petrobras in Amazonas and six Boeing 727-200F for cargo and nightmail flights as per contract with Brazilian Post and Telegraph Corporation and the Central Bank of Brazil, among others.[5]
