The arrival of the plane took place at the Belo Horizonte International Airport in Confins and is part of the company’s fleet modernization plan - the objective is to complete its renovation until 2028. The model’s debut is expected to happen next month.
The goal of the airline, according to Gol’s vice president planning, Celso Ferrer, is to offer direct flights from Brazil to destinations in both Latin America and the United States with the new model. Some of the international routes have already been confirmed to receive the 737 Max 8. These include the four daily flights to Florida, scheduled to debut in November - two from Fortaleza and two from Brasilia, one for Orlando and one for Miami departing from each city – and the newly announced Sao Paulo-Quito route in Ecuador, scheduled for December.
