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.
