Gol Boeing 737 MAX 8

Following Aruba, Gol launches new flight to Costa Rica

Brazilian airline will connect São Paulo (Guarulhos) to San José three times a week from November 12th

Gol Linhas Aéreas announced another new international destination, San José, in Costa Rica, which will have flights from the Brazilian airline starting in November.

There will be three weekly flights from São Paulo (Guarulhos), starting on November 12th, a Tuesday, with departures also on Thursdays and Saturdays.

Departure from Brazil will take place at 1:55 pm with arrival in San José at 6:25 pm (local time). The return flight takes off at 8:40 pm and arrives in São Paulo at 7:10 am the following day.

The route is not served by any other carrier at this time. Currently, only JetSmart flies from Costa Rica to Montevideo, Uruguay, once a week, which is the closest option to Brazil.

The flights will be operated with the Boeing 737 MAX 8, with 176 seats and which offers enough autonomy to cover the 5,500 km that the two cities have to travel non-stop.

“GOL currently serves 12 international destinations across the Americas and, optimistically, continues to strengthen its presence outside the country: at the end of March, we began operations in Colombia and, recently, we announced Aruba as our newest exclusive destination in the Caribbean”, said Rafael Araújo, director of Network Planning at the airline.

Gol announced last week that it will resume flights to Aruba, in the Caribbean, in December, after several years without serving the island. This time, thanks to the 737 MAX, flights will be direct from São Paulo instead of making stops as was the case in the past when there was a stop in Caracas, Venezuela.

According to Gol, more than 120,000 tourists from South America visited Costa Rica in 2023, most of them from Brazil, despite the absence of direct flights.

In the process of financial restructuring since January after accumulating billions of dollars in debt, Gol has been expanding its international flight network in search of greater revenue in dollars.
