GOL Linhas Aereas Inteligentes S.A. (NYSE: GOL) said it has signed a codeshare agreement with Etihad Airways, an airline headquartered in Abu Dhabi, in the United Arab Emirates.
The agreement depends on approval from ANAC (National Civil Aviation Agency) and CADE (Brazil´s antitrust authority).
The companies already have an interline agreement and the expansion of the partnership through the codeshare agreement will initially allow Etihad Airways to include its code on flights operated by GOL, giving its customers a greater number of connections for destinations in Brazil and South America.
GOL Linhas Aereas Inteligentes offers around 910 daily flights to 67 destinations under the GOL and VARIG brands. The company also operates Gollog, a logistics service which retrieves and delivers cargo and packages to and from more than 3,500 cities in Brazil and six abroad.
