Gol Linhas (GOL) Sales Rise 75% in April on Improving Demand

·3 min read

Gol Linhas Aereas Inteligentes S.A. GOL provided an update on its operational performance in April. The company’s daily sales volumes jumped 75% in April on a month-over-month basis, thanks to continued recovery in air-travel demand in Brazil as vaccinations increase in the nation.

The airline operated approximately 200 daily flights on peak days and covered 67 destinations last month. The carrier’s consolidated gross revenues totaled approximately R$250 million in the month. Given Gol Linhas’ constant efforts to match capacity with passenger demand, average load factor (percentage of seats filled with passengers) was 83% in April.

Passenger revenue per available seat kilometers, or PRASK, rose 38% month over month as well as 5% year over year due to higher ticket pricing, owing to dynamic yield management and recovery in travel demand compared with April 2020 when coronavirus cases were surging in Brazil. Gol Linhas’ net cash consumption, excluding financial debt service, was neutral in April.
