Before arriving at the interview for any airline, you must do your research about the airline at which you are applying for a vacancy.

Here is a quick fact sheet with what you should know about Gol Linhas Aereas Inteligentes.  To the best of our knowledge this information is correct.  However, this is only intended as a guidline and you should do your own research too!

Aircraft types

Gol currently flies only Boeing 737 aircraft, they have 144 737-700 models that are used for short and medium haul domestic routes and 177 737-800 models that are also used for short and medium duration domestic routes and some of their longer international routes.  Of the 737-800 fleet they posses some 1.5 and 2.0 versions which utilize carbon brakes and provide a shorter stopping distance and are used preferentially on flights to and from Santos Dumont and Congonhas and other shorter, more challenging runways.

Here is a comparison between the two 737 models

Engine thrust, MTOW and range (full load) based on best options available.

The difference in passenger numbers in the fleet is dependent on the specific aircraft model and on emergency equipment that is carried.

At the time of writing it is believed that Gol currently have 140 aircraft on order, these being:

  • 80 x 737-800
  • 60 x 737-8MAX

Recently Gol have been rumoured to be looking to purchase a fleet of regional jets, though I can not find any evidence to support this.


The airline was established in 2000 and started operations on January 15, 2001 with a flight from Brasília to São Paulo. It is a subsidiary of the Brazilian conglomerate Grupo Áurea based at Minas Geraisstate, which has other transport interests including Brazil’s largest long-distance bus company. Grupo Áurea in turn is owned by the Constantino family. As of 2004, Gol had carried 11,600,000 passengers, and constituted 20% of the Brazilian air travel market.

On June 24, 2004 Gol launched simultaneous initial public offerings on the New York and São Paulo stock exchanges. It is now owned by AeroPar Participações (77%), Venture (17.6%) and American International Group (5.4%) and employs approximately 20,000 staff (as of Febuary 2015). The growth in Gol’s stock price made the Constantino family a member of the Forbes Magazine billionaire list in 2005 .

The airline’s biggest competitors

Taking in to account the low cost model that Gol believe that they are using, Azul could be considered the largest competitor given that both companies claim to employ low cost models, however, given that the price difference between TAM and Gol is, at best, marginal, TAM could well be considered as Gol’s largest competitor given that TAM have a larger share of the aviation marlet in Brazil.  However, politics and opinions aside, both TAM and Azul can be considered to by the largest competitors to Gol in the domestic market at this time.
