Gol and Aerolíneas Argentinas expand code share

Carriers will include flights between Buenos Aires and Bogotá in agreement starting in April

Gol Linhas Aereas and Aerolíneas Argentinas announced on January 5 an update to their code share agreement to include the Brazilian carrier’s Buenos Aires (Ezeiza) and Bogotá route.

According to the two airlines, passengers of both will be able to enjoy benefits similar to those on the Aerolíneas flight between Aeroparque and the capital of Colombia.

The agreement, signed by CEOs Celso Ferrer and Fabián Lombardo, still depends on approval from the Argentine authorities and will be valid from April, when Gol will debut the connection, the airline’s first to not pass through Brazilian cities.

“Gol and Aerolíneas Argentinas are proud of the role they have played in the development of the airline sector between the two countries, and we look forward to continuing to work collaboratively to promote tourism and business across South America. We are confident that, working together, we can create a stronger and more cooperative aviation scenario on the continent, benefiting our customers, our employees and, above all, our countries and citizens”, said Celso Ferrer, CEO of Gol.

“Gol is a strategic ally of Aerolíneas Argentinas, our relationship continues to strengthen over time and goes beyond borders. Precisely, this expansion means advancing on this path of support and joint growth that will allow us to offer more and better destinations and services to our passengers”, said Fabián Lombardo, CEO of Aerolíneas Argentinas.

The partnership between the two South American airlines began in 2007 as an interline agreement, evolving into a code-share from 2014.

According to the companies, Aerolíneas customers have access to 75 markets operated by GOL, which in return can sell tickets to 62 markets served by the Argentine company.

The expansion of the partnership between Aerolíneas and Gol follows a recent agreement in which the state airline approached members of Abra, the holding company that controls the Brazilian airline and also Avianca.
