TAM Airlines is the largest Brazilian airline. The main base of the company is located in the city of São Paulo. The main directions of the route network of the company cover the cities of Brazil.

On November 11, 1975, the Brazilian Government created an integrated regional transport system, according to which the country was divided into 5 parts. Each of them created its own airline. TAM Airlines has become one of these regional companies. The organization began to provide its air transportation services on July 12, 1976, its operational area consisted of separate areas of the South-Eastern and Central-Western regions of the country and, in particular, the state of Mato Grosso do Sul, some areas of the state of Mato Grosso and major city of Sao Paulo.

1986 began for the airline with the official listing of its shares on the Brazilian stock exchange. In the same year, TAM Airlines acquired another airline that operated in the north and center of the country. Both companies continued to fly under their own brands while consolidating their routes.

On May 15, 1900, the government of the country removed all restrictions on the route networks of regional airlines, allowing them to serve any state of Brazil.

Despite the certain weight of TAM Airlines, the companies that owned more economical and roomy Boeing 737 aircraft began to gradually oust a weaker competitor from the aviation services market. TAM Airlines tried to subjugate its main enemy, the VASP, but, failing, took a slower path - focusing efforts on updating its fleet. Over the next few years, the company has been fruitfully working in the chosen direction - it acquires new aircraft, subordinates new bankrupt companies to itself. Positive results appear in 1997, when the company opens its first international flight, and in 1999 new flights to Europe begin to operate.

Airlines of the World and Russian ...

Delayed flight was just grand, as it turned out the plane is not suitable for the transportation of passengers. We had to wait for another plane will make a scheduled flight, and on the way back to pick up on our side. If the aircraft fail - dispose of it. Needless to expose the danger of passengers.

Not to say that for me this company is somehow separated from the other series, but their service is still better than most Russian airlines.

Despite the fact that the flight was short, we were given refreshments and given that most companies are doing similar only after the insistence, by people who were not able to fly for a whole day.

Before departing I read a lot of different opinions on this airline, but the overall assessment remains positive. Flight on vacation I really liked. Inside, everything is made as comfortable as possible. The flight attendant politely explains in detail all the issues. My children from her were crazy, all managed to pay an equal share of attention and a little to relieve my wife.

In April 2015 flew with the family airlines TAM and LAN. Particularly pleasantly surprised by the latter, while TAM did not like at all. A very small step of the chairs. With my growth in 189 cm, I had to keep my legs throughout the flight inclined and in different directions - I could not place them in the allotted space. As for food, it can be called mediocre. Among the spirits on the international flights among the spirits served wine. Among the merits - the timely disembarkation / landing of passengers, clean interior. In general, I advise you to choose an airline TAM only if you are chasing cheap air tickets.
