New codeshare with GOL.
American Airlines and GOL, Brazil’s largest airline, announced a new reciprocal codeshare agreement, giving customers access to 20 new destinations in South America.
When approved by authorities in the United States and Brazil, our new codeshare with GOL will allow customers to connect seamlessly to 53 GOL flights beyond GIG, Sao Paulo (GRU), Brasilia (BSB), Manaus (MAO) and Fortaleza (FOR).
The 20 new codeshare destinations in South America not currently served by American include Asuncion, Paraguay (ASU); Curitiba, Brazil (CWB) and Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil (IGU), pending government approvals. We anticipate GOL’s code to be placed on select flights and the relationship will allow for future frequent flyer redemption and accrual, during the first half of 2020.

All new flights will operate daily on our mainline aircraft, with optimal flight times for connections to Latin America and the Caribbean from MIA. We recently increased flights from Austin, Texas (AUS) and New York City (JFK) to MIA starting summer 2020, with one additional flight from AUS to MIA and three additional flights from JFK.
As we partner with GOL and increase our service to MIA, we will add a second daily flight from MIA to GIG during the peak winter season from Jan. 7 through March 28. Flights will operate on the state-of-the-art Boeing 787-8.
We have served Latin America since 1942 and fly up to 170 daily flights to 55 destinations in 18 countries in Latin America, from eight hub airports, as well as from Boston (BOS).
