Gol has received today approval from ANAC to fly 14 weekly flights to LIM and is taken the necessary steps to begin operations.

With this new destination, and considering they just receive approval to fly to MEX, Gol is really looking to be a big player on South America Market.

Seven flights for sure will be from Sao Paulo, and the other seven could be even from SCL or other brazilian city.

Last week they receive approval to fly Mexico and also 7 additional frequencies to MVD. Gol is waiting final allocation for CCS and BOG also.

During the next month, they will receive 4 738 (all from Boeing) and 1 73G (ex-RG) to upgrade their operations, and also to begin their SCL route (with 3 daily flights).

Tks for the info, Lipe.

Indeed, GOL is already the biggest Boeing operator in the region, and the fastest growing airline worldwide.

Apparently both flights to LIM and MEX will be operated via MAO.

Rgs,

MEX via MAO makes some sense, but LIM via MAO or SCL doesn't... I would guess maybe via CGB is more likely.

Does anyone see Gol becoming the WN or Ryan Air of South America; they already are for Brazil? I would love to see an airline like GOl connect all of South America that way, I really think it could be an amazing thing. Will other countries in South America allow that to happen?

Wow, it looks like GOL is having a huge expansion all over the continent!

I'm Happy for them!

Yeah, I was going to ask about this. If they fly to CCS how will they do it. Seems like Varig will start flying to CCS next week via Manaus. Can the 73G fly non-stop from GRU to CCS? Is it withing GOL's policy?

Cheers



Flying isn't dangerous. Crashing is what's dangerous!

You can wait and will see in the near future Gol as the Ryanair of South America. They have huge plans for more flights and their fleet will be 2x bigger than nowadays.

They can block, but cannot avoid Gol plans. Brazil is a natural hub for South America, and due to the size of the country, Gol could be a strong player at POA (taking care of Argentina, Uruguay and Chile), IGU (Paraguay/Bolivia), BSB (Peru), MAO (Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador) and BEL/MCP among others. Their domestic network is a strong advantage among other airlines.

Yes, it could, but i believe it will be BOG from GIG and CCS from GRU, both with stop at MAO (so you can fly GIG-MAO MAO-CCS). Their kind of service it's not good for a 6 hours flight.

LIM via MAO does make sense because we're clearly seeing GOL overhanging MAO as one hub prominent airport:
from LIM to CCS, BOG, MEX, MIA and Brazilian northern cities via MAO.

Isn't MAO too far east if someone travelling between LIM and MIA, MEX, BOG?
Is there that much traffic between LIM and Brazilian northern cities (BEL, SLZ, FOR, NAT, REC, SSA)?
