SAO PAULO, Brazil – GOL Linhas Aereas Inteligentes S.A., the parent company of Brazilian airlines GOL Transportes Aereos S.A. (“GTA”, Brazil’s low-cost, low- fare airline) and VRG Linhas Aereas S.A. (“VRG”, Brazil’s premium service airline), has entered an interline agreement with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines.
Effective January 17, KLM’s passengers can purchase tickets to all 60 destinations served by GOL in Brazil and South America.
GOL will offer passengers the added convenience of having their luggage checked through to their final destination, eliminating the need to pick up their bags when transferring flights in Brazil. GOL will also honor KLM’s baggage allowance policy on all domestic and international flights, regardless of which carrier operates the first flight. Fares under this agreement account for all legs of the trip, including both KLM and GOL routes.
In addition to KLM, GOL maintains interline agreements with Aerolineas Argentinas, Air France, Continental Airlines, Delta Air Lines and VRG Linhas Aereas, and has operated a code-share agreement with Panama-based Copa Airlines since August 2005.
