Avianca Brasil was a Brazilian airline which operated passenger services within Brazil and South America, on behalf of Avianca. The airline's legal name of the airline remained OceanAir, however, it had been rebranded as Avianca since it was owned by Synergy Group, which owns Avianca Holdings. Avianca Brasil's main bases were Brasilia and Sao Paulo-Guarulhos Airports. Avianca Brasil operated passenger services from 25 destinations.
Avianca Brasil ceased operations in 2019 and filed for bankruptcy in 2020, therefore it is no longer flying. Avianca also has other brands, such as Avianca Costa Rica (previously known as LACSA Airlines), Avianca Argentina and Aerogal Avianca Ecuador.
For domestic flights, passengers had to check in 60 minutes before departure. For international flights, check-in had to be done two hours before departure.

In the seats, there were power and USB outlets and on-board headphones for passengers to use their personal devices. There was also a selection of on-board entertainment, with TV shows, music and audio, documentaries and newspapers. To watch the provided entertainment, passengers would either have a personal screen or a communal suspended screen (depending on the aircraft type).
