Azul is the third largest Brazilian carrier and JetBlue , the US’s fifth largest airline operates close to 100 daily flights from Fort Lauderdale and about 65 a day from Orlando.

Azul and JetBlue were founded by same man, David Neeleman, which might explain the similarity in names between the two airlines he started. Earlier this year, Azul announced it was becoming the shirt sponsor for the NASL’s Fort Lauderdale Strikers, which was a clear attempt to create more brand awareness within Florida.
