GOL orders 135 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft to renew fleet

Brazilian airline GOL Linhas Aéreas Inteligentes (NYSE: GOL) has announced it is renewing its fleet with an order of 135 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, expected to be fully delivered by 2028, the company said.

GOL already operates Brazil´s newest and most modern fleet. The delivery of 105 Boeing 737 MAX 8 and 30 Boeing 737 MAX 10 aircraft will maintain this competitive advantage, while enabling the airline to expand its operations with more long-haul flights.

The first three MAX 8 aircraft were delivered to GOL between June and October 2018 and are already operating on commercial flights. The company will add four MAX 8 aircraft to its fleet by the end of 2018, replacing its Next Generation (NG) models.

GOL Linhas Aéreas Inteligentes is Brazil´s largest airline. It has a fleet of over 120 aircraft and operates 700 flights daily. Last year, 32 million customers flew with GOL Airlines to 67 destinations, 13 of which were international.
