TAP and GOL initiate codeshare agreement

TAP, the leading airline operating between Europe and Brazil, and Brazilian GOL – Linhas Aéreas Inteligentes, the largest low cost airline in Latin America, have agreed on an operational code-share partnership, which will provide greater convenience for those looking to travel from Europe to a number of different destinations in Brazil. This will result in improved services to customers of both companies.

TAP is now able to offer multiple flight options to several Brazilian cities, on top of the 
12 served directly from Europe. Using  GOL‘s Brazilian network,  TAP will now be able 
to offer direct links between the international hubs it already serves,  and also offer
customers a significant number of new destinations such as Teresina, Austin, Curitiba,
Florianópolis, Iguaçu, João Pessoa, São Luiz, Goiânia, Maceió, Porto Seguro, Victoria
and Campina Grande. It is expected that in the near future this cooperation will be 
extended to a total of 29 destinations within Brazil.

Currently, TAP offers up to 81 weekly flights from Heathrow, Gatwick and Manchester, 
via Lisbon or Porto, to 12 destinations in Brazil: Fortaleza, Natal, Recife, Salvador, 
Brasilia, Belo Horizonte, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Campinas, Porto Alegre, Manaus
and Belém. GOL’s network extends to a total of 54 destinations in Brazil as well 
as another 15 destinations throughout in South America, the Caribbean and the 
United States.

Both companies continue to work towards interlinking their respective loyalty programs, 
TAP Victoria and GOL's Smiles, in the near future, creating multiple options to earn and 
use miles over TAP and GOL’s respective networks.

TAP believes that implementing this code-share with GOL will meet the expectations of 
its customers in the UK market, creating a much wider network throughout Brazil.
