Nacional Transportes Aéreos was a Brazilian airline founded in 2000. It ceased operations in 2002.


The low-fare carrier Nacional Transportes Aéreos was founded on December 26, 2000 and had as its first service the trunk route São Paulo-Guarulhos / Rio de Janeiro-Galeão / Recife / Fortaleza / São Luís, operated with a Boeing 737-400. The following year, Araçatuba, Brasília, Campo Grande, Cuiabá and Goiânia were added to the network. The Boeing 737-400 was returned to the leasor in April 2001 and replaced by a Boeing 737-200. A second 737-200 arrived in July 2001.[1]

In January 2002, as a consequence of a financial crisis, Nacional was forced to return the aircraft and ceased all operations a few weeks later.[2]
