GOL Linhas Aereas Inteligentes is launching flights to Cordoba, Argentina. GOL will offer two flights to the city, with different routes, both departing three times per week. Cordoba is GOL’s second destination in Argentina—the Company currently flies to Buenos Aires.
The first flight, launched yesterday, flies the following route: Galeao International Airport, in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) - Porto Alegre (Brazil) - Cordoba (Argentina).
The second flight, launching today, departs from Guarulhos International Airport, in Sao Paulo (Brazil), with stops in Curitiba (Brazil) and Asuncion (Paraguay), landing in Cordoba. The Asuncion - Cordoba route marks the first time GOL will fly directly between South American countries, without a Brazil connection.
“Beginning operations between two South American countries further shows GOL’s commitment to popularizing high quality, low-fare air transportation,” says Tarcisio Gargioni, vice-president of Marketing and Services at GOL.
Cordoba has strong commercial ties with Brazil and is one of the most important cities in Argentina—second only to the capital, Buenos Aires.
With a population of approximately 1.4 million people, the largest sector of its economy is commerce, followed closely by manufacturing and the automobile industry, civil construction, transportation and real estate.
The business flows between Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires, Cordoba and Rosario (Argentina) represent one of the most important and developing corridors in South America.
Beginning operations to this additional city in Argentina reflects GOL’s commitment to connecting important regions across South America and strengthening the commercial and economic ties between two important members of the MERCOSUR.
“We firmly believe this route will not only contribute to furthering business between Brazil and Argentina, but will also stimulate passenger flow between the two countries,” adds Gargioni.
