Brazil’s GOL Joins BSP in Greece, Appoints Discover the World as GSA
Brazilian airline GOL Linhas Aéreas Inteligentes (G3), the largest low-cost airline in Latin America, on Wednesday announced it has joined Greece’s BSP (Billing Settlement Plan) booking system. BSP facilitates access to all IATA accredited travel agents to sell GOL’s tickets through their outlets.
Also, the airline has appointed Discover the World as its General Sales Agent (GSA) in Greece.
GOL offers around 900 daily flights to 73 destinations, 17 of which are international to South America, the Caribbean and the United States. The airline has a young, modern fleet of Boeing 737-700 and 737-800 Next Generation (NG) aircraft, the safest, most efficient and economical of their type with an average age of 7.5 years. GOL currently has interline agreements with 79 airlines.
GOL was founded in 2001 to offer air travel in Brazil and throughout South America at competitive fares.
Its strategy of seeking profitable growth through its low cost model with high quality customer service allows the company to offer competitive fares.
In 2014, GOL carried 37.7 million passengers. In order to build this tradition of achievement and growth, the company relies on approximately 16,354 employees.
The company revolutionized the Brazilian civil aviation sector by concentrating its sales on the Internet and by introducing intelligent web-based check-in, as well as being the first Brazilian company to make the entire check-in procedure possible via mobile phone.
GOL also has a very small percentage of delayed flights, at only six percent, thanks to the continuous improvements made in the check-in process.
GOL’s shares are listed on the NYSE and the Bovespa.
