According to the company’s communications advisory. the Gol aircrafts fly, in average, more than 14 hours per day. This is the greatest productivity rates in Brazil and one of the best in the world. In addition, the company’s 25-minute turnaround time is one of the shortest among airlines throughout the world.

Gol also announced that it has increased its fleet plan for the 2006-2008 period as part of the Company’s continuing plans for route expansion and cost reductions. The fleet expansion should meet the increasing demand in the Brazilian domestic market – an estimated growth of 18% in 2006.

Earlier this week, Gol commemorated its second anniversary as a publicly-held company listed on the New York and São Paulo stock exchanges, by announcing the launch of a new version of its Investor Relations (IR) site. 

In line with the company’s differentiated financial communications strategy, Gol’s new IR site includes several innovations, such as customizable home pages for different investor constituencies: analysts, institutional investors and retail investors.
