GOL reduces costs of ticket distribution

GOL Linhas Aereas Inteligentes announced today that beginning January 1, 2007, commissions paid to travel agents on GOL ticket sales will be reduced to 7 percent for domestic flights and 6 percent for international flights. The decision is part of the GOL’s overall cost reduction plan which is expected to reduce operating costs, as measured by CASK, by 7 percent in 2007.

The Company also expects annual cost savings of R$95-105 million in travel agency commissions in 2007. “Reducing our costs will allow the Company to offer even lower airfares and continue to popularize air transportation,” says GOL’s Vice-president of Marketing and Services, Tarcisio Gargioni.
