  • Read more 23FEB2014: Air France-KLM to invest $100mn in Brazil's Gol Linhas Aéreas
    Gol Linhas Aéreas Inteligentes (G3, São Paulo Congonhas) has signed a long-term exclusive strategic partnership agreement with Air France (AF, Paris CDG) and partner KLM Royal Dutch Airlines (KL, Amsterdam) in which the Franco-Dutch carrier will invest USD100million in Gol. In its filing with the Brazilian stock market, Gol says the investment will include a subscription of GOL shares for USD52 million, representing a 1.5% equity stake. The remaining USD48million will come in the form of commercial agreements and a bonus based on the achievement of potential cost savings.

    The partnership will also provide for greater coordination between the airlines' respective networks thereby increasing the number of connecting opportunities between Europe and Brazil. Exclusive codesharing between Air France-KLM and Gol will be extended to flights operated by Air France and KLM between Europe and Brazil as well as to intranational Brazilian flights operated by Gol.

    Camiel Eurlings, President & CEO of KLM, will also become a member of the Alliance Committee of Gol's Board of directors.

    The long-term agreement also provides for enhanced cooperation in the field of aircraft maintenance, including engines and APU, aircraft components and for overhauls.

    All firms expect to obtain regulatory approval for the deal in time for the start of the World Cup in June.
  • Read more 09JAN2014: Brazilian carriers ask for added local frequencies during World Cup
    TAM Linhas Aéreas (JJ, São Paulo Congonhas) and Gol Linhas Aéreas Inteligentes (G3, São Paulo Congonhas) among other Brazilian carriers, have applied to the country's civil aviation regulator (Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil - ANAC) to allow some 1,500 additional flights to meet demand during the upcoming World Cup. In a statement issued to the AFP, ANAC says the airlines' requests are being considered and "will be approved based on the capacity of each airport" in terms of runways and parking space. The airlines are pushing for a 48% increase in the number of flights in Cuiabá, 36.5% more flights at São Paulo Guarulhos, 27.5% more in Natal, 17.8% in Fortaleza, 14% more in Salvador and 13% more in both Recife and Rio de Janeiro Int'l. A final decision on the matter is due on January 15. Recently, Brasilia announced plans to introduce legislation allowing foreign carriers to ply domestic routes for the duration of the tournament in the hopes of increasing both capacity and competition between carriers. LCC Azul Linhas Aéreas Brasileiras (AD, Campinas Viracopos) has already announced plans to cap the cost of flights during the World Cup; a move while welcomed by ANAC, will cost Azul an estimated BRR20million (USD8.47million) in foregone revenue. Brazil is expecting at least 600'000 soccer fans in the country between June and July.
  • Read more 06JAN2014: Brazil wants to open up airspace to foreign traffic during World Cup
    Gol Linhas Aéreas Inteligentes (G3, São Paulo Congonhas) and other local Brazilian operators could see increased competition on the domestic front after government announced plans to allow foreign carriers to operate within the country's airspace during this year's FIFA World Cup. The tournament is scheduled to take place between June 12 and July 13. Prime Minister Helen Hoffmann Gleisi says her government wants to introduce the new legislation as a means of boosting competition on local routes thereby lowering fares. "We will not set ticket prices, but we will do everything in our power to prevent predatory pricing," she said. According to the Brazilian press, domestic fares over the World Cup period have rocketed up 176%. Given the country's size, air transport is the only viable means of travelling between the 12 venues with an estimated 600'000 visitors expected.

    Gol Linhas Aéreas Inteligentes (G3, São Paulo Congonhas) has postponed plans to launch Gol Dominicana (Santo Domingo Las Américas) until 2014 pending the issuance of an Air Operators Certificate (AOC) from the Dominican civil aviation authority ( Instituto Dominicano de Aviación Civil - IDAC).

"We are interested in starting flying early next year; in fact, we had all the logistics in place for a year-end launch, but it was not possible," he told Caribbean News. Once operational, Gol Dominicana plans to establish Santo Domingo Las Américas as a regional Caribbean hub with direct flights to Mexico, Colombia, the eastern United States and Brazil.
