According to Folha.com.br, GOL is planing to fly from GRU to MIA through CCS beginning in July 2012. The airline is expected to use 737s and already has ANAC approval.

OMG, I was JUST thinking about this 2 days ago, but figured their 73G couldn't make it from Brazil. With the stop in CCS, will they be using 73G or 738?

This is great news. I believe that G3 will be terminating their agreements with AA in August. I wonder if this means that G3 will be exclusive with DL since DL has invested in G3. The orange colours of G3 will be welcome in the US.

I would guess 738.

Didn't see this one coming, its bold of GOL to fly a 737NG so far north.

Not sure Venezuelans are too keen to give traffic rights between Venezuela and U.S. to non-Venezuelan airlines, under the current circumstances.
The B737-700/800 has the range for Brazil-MFW non-stop, being Brazil MAO, BEL, SLZ or CGB.
IMHO, GRU-CGB-MFW may be a more attractive route than via CCS and G3 may be best staying away from MIA flying to FLL, specially now that Brazilian JJ is part of LA and LA+other LA airlines belongs to the same alliance as AA.

MFW = IATA for Miami-Ft Lauderdale-West Palm Beach metro area

That's probably why flying via a major Brazilian city currently with no direct link to MIA -but within B737 range - might be a better option than via CCS.
If G3 already got the MIA 5th freedom from Venezuela, then that flight will see very few GRU-MIA passengers, as CCS-MIA-CCS traffic might be able to cover all the operational expenses of the entire GRU-CCS-MIA route.

I have known about this for some weeks now, but chose not to write anything about it here just like some other A.net members, since there were no details and specifics about what they were planning. It's become clear now that they are bit clueless. We are seeing their amateurish ways about international service all over again. It's kind of embarrassing.
Gol had 14 Brazil-US and 7 additional Brazil-Venezuela frequencies allocated on February 16th.

First, Brazilians generally do not refer to South Florida Metro as Miami. Second, the Venezuela-Brazil ASA is specific about Miami.

The Venezuela-Brazil bilateral agreement already allows 5th freedom rights to 50% of the 21 agreed weekly flights, but to MIA specifically.

Well hope G3 sees the opportunity and does it the way it should. G3 on the CCS-Florida market would definitely leave an impression.
If G3 got allowance for 10-11 Venezuela-US flights then G3 should immediately study a GIG-MAR-MFW too, thrice weekly may be fine.

It must be to MIA. It's very improbable that Venezuela will reinterpret the bilateral in favour of other points in South Florida.
Other allowed 5th freedom rights destinations are Aruba, Cuba, Dominican Republic and Panama.

That's because only GCM carries it, AFAIK.
MFW is the IATA code for Magaruque.

Thanks C010T3, the way I read it, the document you linked only explains what they intend to do with regards to the frequencies to the U.S. and Venezuela. It doesn't state G3's actual plan to start flights from CCS to MIA. If you have more information, please let us know here.

That press release is just the airline cleaning the mess up. There are more than enough frequencies in the pool to apply for at any time. Gol made a huge mistake by applying for those frequencies before they had a plan.

So this rumor of G3 going to start a CCS-MIA route in July of 2012 is not true? Will it happen or not?

It will probably happen, but it's not 100% certain. The July deadline comes from the fact that the frequencies return to the allocation pool if not used for 180 days. Furthermore, Gol stated that narrowbody aircraft will be used, so everybody is assuming that one of the flight will be via CCS. There are other rumours about the other flight being via BEL.
You saw the title of that press release "GOL ANNOUNCES A STUDY OF FLIGHTS TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA". It's not to the USA and Venezuela, so it's pretty clear that Venezuela will be a stop.
What they are still arguing is whether the flights will be launched at all. Basically, they have revealed something to the competition without having to. That's why the allocation request was premature, which is a sign of a very amateur strategic team there.

I can tell you that it is MIA. I'm currently working on some market profiles to present to G3 so that they have an idea of the traffic inbound and outbound on their desired routings. But that is all that I can say, at least for now.

I know there's issues for flights linking Venezuela and the USA at this time.
On the other hand, Gol already gets traffic rights to operate flights out of Caracas.
The airline flies G3 GRU-CCS-AUA 2x weekly and G3 GRU-CCS-PUJ 5x weekly.

That makes sense.
JJ flew FOR-BEL-MAO-MIA 7x weekly with 320 prior to the launch of the dedicated JJ MAO-MIA 7x weekly with 763.

GOL used to be one of the most profitable airlines before buying RG brand/intl routes rights. Could they have not raised money back in the days to then acquire some 777s and make a nice intl product? These people seem pretty dumb to me!
