Gol Plans to Start Regular Flights to U.S. After Approval, Estado Reports

Gol Linhas Aereas Inteligentes SA (GOLL4) is preparing to start operating regular flights between Brazil and the U.S., O Estado de S. Paulo reported, without saying where it obtained the information.

Gol received approval this month from Brazil’s civil aviation agency, known as Anac, to operate 14 flights a week to the U.S. and has a period of 180 days from Feb. 17 to request the routes it wants to operate, according to the newspaper. So far, no formal request has been made, O Estado said.

Gol confirmed its interest in returning to the U.S. market but didn’t provide details of its plan, according to O Estado.
