The flights will be daily from Sao Paulo Guarulhos Airport, to Orlando, and Rio de Janeiro Galleao Airport, to Miami, with a stop in Santo Domingo.
Gol had started flying to the United States in June, with a frequency for Miami. The company made just five flights, all exclusive to Smiles customers.
A mega purchase
The Brazilian businessmen Jorge Paulo Lemann, Marcel Telles and Beto Sicupira prepare another billionaire shot – and again in the U.S., where the trio has already bought Anheuser Busch and Burger King. The trio raised US$ 3 billion to make a mega-acquisition. Of this total, US$ 600 million comes from the trio. The remainder was captured with people like Eike Batista and others businessmen.
