GOL Linhas Aéreas Inteligentes and Delta Air Lines have filed requests for authorisation to implement a codeshare agreement with Brazilian and US authorities.
The codeshare will initially allow Delta to assign its code to more than 45 GOL flights departing from Brasilia, Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo to other Brazilian destinations, as well as two GOL flights between Brazil and Paraguay and Uruguay (subject to appropriate approvals).
From June, registered frequent flyers from both airlines can earn miles on both GOL’s SMILES and Delta’s SkyMiles programmes on eligible flights. Mile redemption is scheduled to begin in the 4th quarter.
