Azul and GOL Airlines Combine Resources


 Two Brazilian Airlines Azul and GOL Airlines announced today a commercial cooperation agreement that will connect their flight networks in Brazil through a codeshare agreement. This partnership covers all domestic routes operated exclusively, meaning routes operated by one of the two companies but not the other.

The agreement also encompasses frequent flyer programs, allowing Azul Fidelidade and Smiles members to earn points in their preferred program when purchasing segments included in the codeshare agreement.

Consumers traveling on Azul and GOL will benefit from this commercial partnership starting at the end of June when the offer will become available through both companies’ sales channels.

Customers will gain access to hundreds of new domestic routes and more convenient connection opportunities. For example, one could travel from Brasília to Tabatinga with a brief layover in Manaus or from Rio de Janeiro to Marabá with a stop in Belém.

Customers can search for domestic segments exclusive to one airline and purchase through Azul’s and GOL’s sales channels. Routes operated by both GOL and Azul are not included in the codeshare.
