The extension of the agreement allows customers of both companies to travel in connection with a single ticket, to check their bags directly to their final destination on connecting flights and to maintain the same baggage allowance on the shared sections. This applies to flights between Brazil and Colombia, as well as to flights within both countries, El Espectador reported.

“Brazil is a very important market in the connectivity network that we have and being able to offer more benefits to our passengers becomes essential in the current context of the resumption of operations in the region. We know that the extension of this codeshare and mileage agreement is key for our passengers and their new travel plans,” said Ana Maria Copete, director of alliances for Avianca Holdings.

Copete refers to the fact that both airlines implemented the “Frequent Flyer Agreement”, thanks to which members of the Smiles and LifeMiles loyalty programs will be able to earn and redeem miles on flights of both airlines.

“Gol, as the leading airline in Brazil, is expanding with Avianca the possibilities of connections in South America and thus increasing the offer to corporate and leisure clients, always considering all security measures, our number one value in this period of reactivation”, added Randall Saenz Aguero, Gol’s Director of Partnerships, International Expansion and Distribution.
