Azul and GOL airlines have announced a commercial cooperation agreement that will connect their flight networks in Brazil through a codeshare agreement.

This partnership covers all domestic routes operated exclusively, meaning rotes operated by one of the two companies but not the other.

The agreement also encompasses frequent flyer programmes, allowing Azul Fidelidade and Smiles members to earn points in their preferred programme when purchasing segments included in the codeshare agreement.

This agreement will bring enormous benefits to our customers. Both companies have a history of aviation development in Brazil, focused on customer service excellence.

“With Azul’s highly connected network serving most cities in Brazil and GOL’s strong presence in the main Brazilian markets, our complementary offerings will provide customers with the widest range of travel options,” said Abhi Shah, President of Azul.

Consumers will benefit from this commercial partnership starting at the end of June, when the offer will become available through both companies’ sales channels.

Customers will gain access to hundreds of new domestic routes, along with more convenient connection opportunities. For example, one could travel from Brasília to Tabatinga with a brief layover in Manaus, or from Rio de Janeiro to Marabá with a stop in Belém.

“GOL and Azul have always been dedicated to expanding the Brazilian aviation market. This codeshare agreement will provide customers with even more travel options across our country. GOL already has over 60 commercial agreements with various global airline partners, and we are eager to extend these benefits within Brazil,” said Celso Ferrer, CEO of GOL.

Azul and GOL operate approximately 1,500 daily departures. This agreement will create over 2,700 travel opportunities with just one connection.
