    As usual, we bring you exciting new partnerships to deliver a revolutionary business aviation experience. The list of our alliances now includes Village Mall, the most luxurious shopping mall in Rio de Janeiro.

    The Village Mall is THE luxury shopping mall of the Rio de Janeiro State. Located conveniently in Barra da Tijuca, it brings together the best outlets of national and international fashion and gastronomy. The shopping mall’s top clients can take part in the VIP (Village Important People) loyalty program, an initiative which already received multiple awards, including ABRASCE (Brazilian Association of Shopping Centers).

    By collecting loyalty points, accrued with each purchase at the mall, the VIP Members get access to exclusive offers and discounts. Now, customers can also exchange their points for aerial services of Flapper, Brazil’s leading on-demand business aviation company. The partnership between the companies resulted in two excellent deals composed of premium transfers, with the origin being the nearby Rio de Janeiro Jacarepaguá Airport.

    Flapper Benefits for Village Mall Members

    Starting at 60,000 loyalty points, Village Mall members can enjoy a 50% discount on their weekly flights between Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. Alternatively, the clients can bring an additional member for free when paying in full for their individual flight.

    Our weekly flights Rio de Janeiro – São Paulo take off from Jacarepaguá Airport, which is located in Novo Rio at Barra da Tijuca neighbourhood. The final destination is São Paulo’s city airport, Congonhas (CGH). The passengers fly on board the flagship executive turbo-prop King Air B200GT, with departures on Mondays and Fridays. The aircraft accommodates comfortably up to 7 passengers and each seat sells at R$ 950,00 (R$475,00 if you are a VIP Member). For more information about our service, go to the following blog post.

    In addition to the shared flight, the clients enjoy access to discounted helicopter transfers from Rio de Janeiro International Airport (GIG, Galeão) to Jacarepaguá Airport. By spending 70,000 VIP points, the members can purchase the charter flight at a fractional price of R$2190,00.

    Rio de Janeiro is popular among helicopter enthusiasts and upscale travellers.

    The helicopter used on that route is the single-engine Robinson R66, with a maximum capacity of 4 passengers. With more space and better technology than R44, this model guarantees extra comfort and is ideal for panoramic flights and short transfers. It has large windows and one external luggage compartment.

    Flapper & VillageMall: Rules

    The offer is valid until the end of July 2019. Each VIP Member can redeem up to 2 flights. We use the national security number (CPF) to limit the maximum number of flights. In order to use the companion benefit on our shared flight, the customer enrolled in the VIP Program should be present at the time of the flight.
