Brazilian low-cost carrier GOL has resumed service at Miami International Airport for the first time since the pandemic with the first of four weekly flights to Brasilia. GOL is using 176-seat Boeing 737 MAX aircraft for the new service, which will increase to daily service starting on July 4. GOL is currently the only airline at MIA with service to Brazil’s capital city, and Miami and Orlando are GOL’s only U.S. destinations.
Colombia’s Avianca and Brazil’s GOL have agreed to a merger that will create a pan-Latin American airline network. The brands will remain independent but benefit from greater efficiencies under aligned ownership, and the lowest unit costs in their respective markets.
American expects to increase commercial cooperation with Gol to accelerate growth and create a more seamless experience for all customers.
The agreement, which will come into force in January, will enable Air Europa passengers flying to its four Brazilian destinations - Sao Paulo, Recife, Fortaleza and Salvador - to connect on with 20 Brazilian cities on the Gol network.

GOL Linhas Aereas Inteligentes, the largest low-cost airline in Latin America, has announced a new partnership with Localiza Rent a Car that will make services for customers even more economic and convenient.
