GOL shows off its first 737 Max 8

GOL Linhas Aรฉreas today celebrated the unveiling of the carrier's newly outfitted Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft during a celebration in Sao Paulo. 

"Today is an exciting day for the entire GOL team, we are happy to welcome the 737 Max 8. We can further improve our operational efficiency by flying a young, modern and safe fleet, while also lowering the cost of air travel and expanding our network to new international destinations," said Paulo Kakinoff, Chief Executive Officer of GOL.

The Brazilian airline took delivery of its first 737 MAX 8 this year and has been improving onboard products and services, such as adding wireless internet to the popular Boeing Sky Interior cabin. The airline is now outfitting its second 737 MAX aeroplane – which it received last week – with the same cabin amenities.

As part of its strategic fleet renewal program, GOL has placed multiple orders for the 737 MAX, including a new order last month at the Farnborough International Airshow. In all, GOL is on track to become the largest MAX operator in Latin America with a fleet of 135 MAX aeroplanes.
