- GOL made a return to the US market on 4 November, the day which saw it begin flights to Orlando (MCO) and Miami (MIA), with the airline having last flown to North America in early 2016 when referencing OAG Schedules Analyser data. Flights on the 5,802-kilometre link between Fortaleza (FOR) and Orlando will be flown five times weekly, while the 5,803- and 6,091-kilometre routes from Brasilia (BSB) to both Floridian airports will see a daily rotation, with all flights flown using the airline’s recently acquired 737 MAX 8s. The airline will also start flights from Fortaleza to Miami in the coming days. Only flights from Brasilia to Orlando are poised not to face direct competition, with LATAM Airlines already offering a twice-weekly service from Fortaleza to Orlando, while American Airlines provides a daily service from the Brazilian capital to its hub in Miami.
