GOL Adds Regional Routes to Network
Brazilian discount carrier GOL has signed a code-share deal with Passaredo Airlines, a regional airline that currently operates 103 flights to 20 destinations in Brazil. As a result, GOL will add the cities of Marilia, Ribeirao Preto, São Jose de Rio Preto, Barreiras, Vitoria da Conquista and Ji-Parana to its network. Based in Ribeirao Preto, Passaredo began operations in 1995. Its fleet consists of five Embraer EMB-120 Brasilia turboprops and 10 Embraer ERJ145 jets. By July it plans to add another eight ERJ145s, now under contract.
