Brazil’s Gol Goes International. First Flight: Buenos Aires

Brazil’s GOL Linhas Aéreas Inteligentes S.A., December 1st, started selling tickets to its first international destination, Buenos Aires, with promotional fares.

The inaugural flight is confirmed for the 22nd of December. GOL will offer two daily flights departing from Guarulhos Airport (City of São Paulo), at 10:20 AM and 08:45 PM, and two flights departing from Ezeiza airport (City of Buenos Aires), at 5:50 AM and 04:30 PM.


For Tarcisio Gargioni, GOL’s Marketing and Services VP, the start of regular operations to Buenos Aires is the solidification of the Company’s expansion plans.


“The first step is being achieved by initiating flights linking the two largest markets in South America”.


According to Embratur’s (Brazilian Tourism Institute) estimates, based on World Tourism Organization’s (WTO) 2003 figures, Argentina was the second most demanded international destination by Brazilians, visited by approximately 326,000 passengers during that year.


This new international destination will offer some unique benefits to GOL’s clients, such as transfers from Ezeiza’s airport to Buenos Aires and improved in-flight service.


Additionally, the benefits of GOL’s partnership with the hotel reservation site Hotel Do will be extended to guests of Argentinean hotels, with discounts of up to 70% on standard rates.


Promotional fare tickets can already be purchased at www.voegol.com.br, with fares starting at US$167.00 one way (OW). These promotional rates are only valid for round trip ticket purchases.
