(BM&FBovespa: GOLL4 and NYSE: GOL) (S&P: B, Fitch: B-, Moody's: B3), the
largest low-cost and low-fare airline in Latin America, hereby announces that
it has filed a formal request with the National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC)
to expand its operations at Viracopos Airport, in Campinas. The company
expects the beginning of six new daily flights (five to Santos Dumont/RJ and
one to Brasilia) on September 1^st, 2013.
"With the expansion project at Campinas airport, we identified an opportunity
for the company to grow in the region, absorbing the demand from cities such
as Limeira, Jundiai, Piracicaba, Itu and Sorocaba, among others," explains
Eduardo Bernardes, Gol's Commercial Officer. "Our aim is not to get passengers
from Sao Paulo to depart via Viracopos, but to make the entire network of the
company and its partners available to customers from Campinas and the region.
In order to do this, we are already analyzing the possibility of offering
buses departing from some of the cities located near Campinas, to facilitate
the arrival at the airport. This measure will provide a comfortable, safe and
practical arrival of our customers, as all the buses will be equipped with
wifi, and the client may, for example, make the check-in."
In addition to these destinations, currently the company's customers can
depart directly from Campinas to Brasilia, Belo Horizonte, Curitiba and
Galeao, in Rio de Janeiro, and to all of GOL's other destinations through
