Gol Linhas Aereas Inteligentes S.A. GOL has entered into an agreement to acquire MAP Transportes Aereos Ltda (“MAP”), a Brazilian domestic airline, for R$28 million.

With a fleet of 70-seat ATRs, MAP operates in routes in the Amazon region and the South and Southeast regions of Brazil. Through the acquisition, Gol Linhas expects a growth of approximately 10% at Sao Paulo's Congonhas Airport owing to the addition of 26 daily flights.

Moreover, the company will be able to expand its domestic network to cover underserved markets. Apart from offering new routes, the airline will provide higher number of seats per flight compared with that currently supplied by MAP, to these markets. In this regard, Gol Linhas will replace MAP’s ATRs with larger and more efficient planes.
