Anivia Servicos Aéreos (Rio de Janeiro International) took delivery of its first B737-300(F), namely N362NC (msn 25215) on lease from Automatic Leasing.

The 31.4-year-old ex-Northern Air Cargo jet was ferried from Miami Opa-Locka via Manaus International and Foz do Iguaçu International to São José dos Campos Professor Urbano Ernesto Stumpf over the course of November 21-24, 2022, Flightradar24 ADS-B data shows. It will become PS-TOT once re-registered in Brazil, although for now, it retains its US registration.

The cargo start-up has yet to complete its certification drive in Brazil. The company was incorporated in August 2021 and is led by US-based fund Centuria Holdings and Brazilian entrepreneurs Fabio Carvalho and Felipe Alves Lima. Carvalho and Lima are associated with Total Express. The logistics firm currently charters a B737-400(F) from unaffiliated Total Linhas Aéreas (TTL, Belo Horizonte Pampulha). Total Express confirmed to local aviation news website Aeroin that Anivia Servicos Aéreos will operate on its behalf once certified.
