Air Canada, GOL sign codeshare agreement

A new codeshare agreement between Air Canada and Brazil's GOL Linhas Aéreas Inteligentes will make it easier for customers to connect and travel through the two airlines' networks. 

The agreement is subject to approval of the Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil, the Conselho Administrativo de Defesa Econômica and the Canadian Transportation Agency. 

According to Ben Smith, president, passenger airlines at Air Canada, the agreement will enhance the airline's newly-started, three-times-a-week non-stop service to Rio de Janeiro and our non-stop daily service to ‎São Paulo from YYZ. 

The two companies currently have an interline agreement that allows customers to make a single reservation for flights on both carriers. The expansion of this partnership under the codeshare agreement will initially allow Air Canada to include its code on flights operated by GOL, enabling its customers a greater number of connections to destinations and improving network connectivity between the companies. 

It also provides for a Frequent Flyer Program Agreement which, when concluded, will allow the members of either loyalty program – Aeroplan from Air Canada Smiles from GOL - the ability to accumulate and redeem miles on eligible flights operated by the two carriers. 

GOL recently appointed Discover the World Marketing as its sales and marketing representative in Canada.
