An Azul Linhas Aereas Airbus A320-200N, registration PR-YRH performing flight AD-2751 from Cuiaba,MT to Sao Paulo Guarulhos,SP (Brazil) with 132 people on board, was accelerating for takeoff from Cuiaba's runway 35 when the crew rejected takeoff at about 88 knots over ground due to a hydraulic fault indication. The aircraft slowed safely and came to a stop about 780 meters/2550 feet down the runway. A female passenger jumping down from the aircraft rather than using the slide received a fracture of her leg during the evacuation, 8 other passengers received minor injuries as result of the evacuation.

The airline reported the aircraft suffered a mechanical malfunction prompting the crew to reject takeoff.

The Aviation Herald received information that a passenger mistaking the flash of the red rotating beacon light as fire shouted "Fire!", opened an emergency exit and evacuated via the slide followed by other passengers. However, as the engines had not yet been shut down, the slide was blown away and passengers jumped rather than slid down. The flight crew subsequently instructed all emergency exits to be opened and an orderly evacuation.

On Dec 2nd 2021 Brazil's CENIPA reported during the takeoff roll the alarm panel displayed a message related to the hydraulic system. The crew rejected takeoff still at low speed. After the aircraft stopped on the runway an evacuation occurred without the commander's command. One passenger sustained a serious injury. No investigation was opened.
