American Airlines-GOL enter codeshare agreement to expand connectivity

American Airlines, a major airline headquartered in Texas, has recently announced that it is entering a reciprocal codeshare agreement with GOL, Brazil’s largest low-cost airline. Under the agreement, travelers will be given new access to 20 new destinations across South America. These flights operated by GOL will include services in Paraguay, Asuncion, and other destinations in Brazil.

American Airlines will also elevate its service offerings and increase network to Rio de Janeiro (GIG) from Miami (MIA) by adding a second daily flight operating during the winter season. Additionally, the airline will add 12 new flights from 6 cities in the United States to benefit customers and enhance the network in Latin America. However, the deal will become effective after being approved by the U.S. and Brazil authorities.

As per the codeshare agreement, apart from enhancing service in South America, a second daily flight will cover the MIA to GIG route on one of American’s first Boeing 787-8s operating out of MIA. There will also be 12-year-round, daily domestic flight frequencies, with increased flight services from Nashville (BNA), Houston (IAH), Raleigh-Durham (RDU), Boston (BOS), Orlando (MCO), and Tampa (TPA) to MIA.

Robert Isom, American Airlines’ President, commented on the carrier’s strong presence in Latin America including operation of over 170 daily flights, Admirals Club lounges as well as Premium Guest Services teams dedicated to Mexico City, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, and Sao Paulo.

Paulo Kakinoff, GOL’s CEO also believes that the agreement will accelerate long-term growth by expanding GOL’s presence in the international market. Eduardo Bernardes, GOL’s Vice President of Commercial and Marketing also stated that the partnership will soon expand to over 30 new destinations in the United States.

After the approval of the new codeshare, customers will be given seamless access to 53 GOL flights beyond Sao Paulo (GRU), GIG, Manaus (MAO), Brasilia (BSB), and Fortaleza (FOR).
