GOL inaugurates operations in Sao Paulo Viracopos

  • GOL commenced operations on four new domestic routes from Sao Paulo Viracopos (VCP) on 27 October. All four services face competition from at least one carrier and are operated using the carrier’s 100+ strong mixed fleet of 737-700s and 737-800s. Commenting on the new development was Eduardo Bernardes, GOL’s CEO: “With the expansion project at Campinas airport, we identified an opportunity for the company to grow in the region, absorbing the demand from cities such as Limeira, Jundiai, Piracicaba, Itu and Sorocaba, among others.”
