Gol Airlines started an agreement to share flights (codeshare) with Korean Air, the largest airline company in South Korea and one of the largest airlines in Asia. The partnership is pending approval from the National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) and the Administrative Council for Economic Defense (CADE). “This is our tenth Codeshare agreement and our first with a Far Eastern company.
