According to the company, the Argentine market has been strategic because it is a country much appreciated by Brazilians – and vice versa.
“Buenos Aires is an important tourist destination in South America and now, Gol customers from the northeast have the opportunity to fly non-stop to Aeroparque airport, which is just 7.5 km from the city center, where they will be able to access the main tourist and business points more easily”, points out Bruno Balan, Strategic Planning Manager for the Air Network at Gol.
The company reinforces that the partnership with Aerolíneas Argentinas allows codeshare between Brazil and Argentina, that is, connectivity to the interior of Argentina, bringing ample options to customers to fly from the Northeast to cities such as Ushuaia, Bariloche, El Calafate, among others.
