Expanded Delta-GOL codeshare connects Florida to Brasilia and Fortaleza

Delta Air Lines and GOL Linhas Aéreas Inteligentes SA announced last week they would cooperate on a codeshare deal for four daily non-stop codeshare flights connecting Miami and Orlando with Fortaleza and Brasilia.

"This is the most significant expansion we have done with GOL since last year, when we announced international codeshare in South America, and it is the next step as we grow our alliance partnership," said Luciano Macagno, Delta's Managing Director - Latin America and the Caribbean. "Codesharing on these flights shows our commitment to Brazil and to Florida and our desire to offer our customers more access between Northern Brazil and the U.S."



Customers travelling to Orlando from Brasilia and Fortaleza will be able to connect to six of Delta's domestic hubs as well as several focus cities, providing access from coast to coast with flights to Los Angeles and New York as well as to Detroit, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Salt Lake City and to Delta's headquarters city, Atlanta.

"We are excited to connect our capital and Fortaleza to the U.S. with Delta as our partner," said Celso Ferrer—GOL's Vice President - Planning. "This network expansion enhances a successful alliance focused on providing our customers improved services, more options and the best experience in every step of their journey."

The Brasilia and Fortaleza hubs provide connectivity to 12 destinations in the interior of Brazil, including Belem (BEL), Belo Horizonte (CNF), Recife (REC), Natal (NAT), Manaus (MAO), Salvador (SSA), Maceió (MCZ), São Luís (SLZ), Cuiaba (CGB), Palmas (PMW), Teresina (THE), and Porto Velho (PVH).

The codeshare schedule of daily flights between Orlando, Miami, Fortaleza and Brasilia is as follows:

DL7601 MCO-BSB 9:30 p.m. 8:20 a.m. (next day)
DL7655 MCO-FOR 9:45 p.m. 7:15 a.m. (next day)
DL7749 MIA-BSB 9:45 p.m. 8:20 a.m. (next day)
DL7733 MIA-FOR 10 p.m. 7:15 a.m. (next day)

DL7654 FOR-MCO 8:35 a.m. 2:25 p.m.

The route will be serviced with GOL's Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft. These aircraft feature 186 seats and GOL+Conforto spaces, which have up to 34-inch pitch and up to 50 percent greater seatback recline than a standard economy seat, as well as GOL Premium class on all international flights.

In addition to the codeshare expansion to Brazil, the airlines announced last year their international codeshare in South America, where GOL began offering codeshare flights between Santiago, Chile, to other destinations served through the partnership with Delta, providing customers from both airlines with increased travel options to and from the United States and South America.
