    GOL Applies to Operate São Paulo-Caracas-Miami Service

    by STAFF on MARCH 14, 2012

    Brazilian carrier GOL Linhas Aéreas Inteligentes S.A., the largest low-cost carrier in Latin America, has applied to the Brazilian Civil Aviation Agency (known as Anac) to operate scheduled services linking Brazil, Venezuela and the United States.
    GOL Linhas Aéreas Inteligentes plans to offer five-times-weekly service from São Paulo Guarulhos International Airport (IATA code GRU) to Simón Bolívar International Airport (CCS) in Maiquetía, near Caracas. The flight would continue on to Miami International Airport (MIA).

    Interesting route. Personally, I wouldn't be keen on such a trip on a 737...

    For a long time Copa has had considerable success with routes from several Brazil cities to PTY and the connecting. They operate only 737. I have never quite had the inclination to try them.

    My parents flew to meet me in MAO once on Copa, from PTY. They flew first class because it was, oddly, the cheapest option available. It sounded like the equivalent of domestic first class in the US: wider plush chairs and more legroom. They did comment that they enjoyed the fish.
