A Super Deal Between New York and Brazil!

You must stay in Brazil for at least 3 days (which won’t be hard to do!) and purchase your ticket 3 days in advance.

Explore Brazil for 10 or 21 Days With Unlimited Flights

I wrote yesterday about Azul Airline’s limited-time promotion for unlimited passes to fly around Brazil for 10 or 21 days.  The passes start at just $299!

To get that deal, though, you must fly to Brazil on Azul Airlines or a United Airlines codeshare flight.

But, if you want to stay in Brazil for an extended time, it could be worth it to use the pass to explore other cities in the country, the beaches and waterfalls, or the Amazon rainforest!
