  • 12 months ended Dec-2011:

GOL: “Demand on the Company's international route network fell by 24.0% year-on-year in December, due to: the return of three B767 aircraft that had been chartered out for international flights; and the discontinuation of flights to Bogota, in Colombia. Yields stood at between BRL21.0 and BRL21.5 cents, slightly up on the same month last year, and yields for the fourth quarter as a whole were very close to December’s level, growing by approximately 2% year-on-year.” Source: Company statement, 24-Jan-2012.
