GOL Linhas Aereas Inteligentes has signed a codeshare agreement with Korean Air, subject to the approval of Agencia Nacional de Aviacao Civil (ANAC) and Conselho Administrativo de Defesa Economica (CADE).
"This is our tenth codeshare agreement and the first with a company in the Far East,” remarked Ciro Camargo, Alliances manager at GOL. “This partnership, when approved, will provide more convenience to passengers that have to do connections to all destinations served by GOL, especially in Brazil.”
With this partnership, Korean Air will include its code on GOL-operated flights giving its customers a greater number of connections for destinations in Brazil and America. Korean Air currently has codeshare partnerships with 29 airlines on 188 routes worldwide.
The companies also entered into an agreement related to each airline’s frequent flyer programmes (FFPs), which will allow the members of their loyalty programmes – GOL's Smiles and Korean's Skypass – the possibility to accumulate and redeem miles in all eligible flights operated by the two companies.
