This peak season Brazilian beaches will receive many south american tourists. The route network will be impressive: GOL will increase capacity on EZE-FLN, EZE-NVT, EZE-GIG, EZE-BPS, EZE-SSA, EZE-MCZ, EZE-REC, EZE-NAT, EZE-FOR, COR-REC, COR-GIG, ROS-GIG, MVD-SSA, SCL-SSA, SCL-GIG, MVD-GIG and IGU-REC...Jump to post
I checked the FAO wikipedia page and there is not a single flight between Faro and Italy. So truly out of the box. I reckon this will be sold mostly to Italian tour-operators. I was on vacations in Europe last month and needed to fly FAO-NAP and was surprised no airline flew that route even on high...Jump to post
I'll give this route a shot. I see it working due to: - Europeans more willing to explore new leisure destinations as Turkey, North Africa, Egypt are stil hostile for tourists. - GOL feed to main markets which have mixed POS (brazilians and europeans flying), neither IB nor AZ had that feed. - North...Jump to post
GOL will offer immediate connections to SSA, REC, NAT, BEL and MAO for AFKL pax. By may next year it will increase its seat capacity in FOR by 35%. I can see the domestic feed growing to more destinations such as BSB, GYN and SLZ. . A couple years ago I was in FCO and there was an Alitalia plane boa...Jump to post

In any case DL is launching JFK-GIG, replacing LATAM.
I always thought the next step in North America for AF Caribbean A320 would be JFK or YUL due to stronger local demand.
ATL makes more sense for connecting though.

I wouldn't compare Brazil's lax standards to link SDU with EYW. Gol takes the risk of putting a 737 in the water if there is an engine out on takeoff.. Any airlines would never do take that risk. Even on the "jungle" that we live called Brazil. GOL's 738 flying in and out SDU are often pa...Jump to post
I'd prefer to drive around an hour or more to fly from VCP which is 150km from SP downtown if there were more airlines/flight options from there, which is faster than reach GRU even if you're in Sao Paulo downtown due the traffic nightmare.

Not long ago Emirates and Gol airlines signed a codeshare agreement so it seems logical that withe the new summer timetable EK is increasing the number of seat in the market, I won't be surprise if by winter schedule we see a 10-14 weekly frequency in the GRU route if they partnership works good fo...Jump to post

I'm really hoping that one of these routes will be a return to Johannesburg. I never understood why TAP dropped it in favor of connections through Maputo in the first place.

I think this move has more to do with Etihad than Brazil - no alliance or partnership feed in Brazil or the rest of the southern cone of Latin America, and a business plan committing to profitability in 2017. Must have been a marginal route for them to begin with. They had Code Sahre with Aerolinea...Jump to post
So, here's a question - if EK has to cut costs and/or reduce employees - where are the majority of those employees from? Are they UAE citizens?
