Brazil's GOL releases preliminary traffic figures for March 2021


GOL Linhas Aéreas Inteligentes S.A., Brazil's largest domestic airline, has released details of its preliminary air traffic figures for the month of March 2021, compared to the same period in 2020.

During March, GOL operated an average of 245 flights per day, and adjusted frequencies to match lower demand in its hubs in Congonhas (São Paulo), Galeão (Rio de Janeiro), Brasília (Distrito Federal), Fortaleza (Ceará) and Salvador (Bahia). GOL remains disciplined in its leadership of the market.

March/21 x February/21 Highlights:  

In the domestic market in March 2021, demand (RPK) for GOL's flights decreased 32% over February 2021 and supply (ASK) decreased by 23% over February 2021, primarily due to a reduction in the demand for airline tickets and an increase in cancellations and no-shows deriving from the effects of a second wave of Covid-19. GOL's domestic load factor was 71.8% in March.
GOL did not operate regular international flights during the month.
