SAO PAULO, June 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- GOL Linhas Aereas Inteligentes S.A. (NYSE: GOL and BM&FBOVESPA: GOLL4), the largest low-cost and low-fare airline in Latin America, will begin flying to Saint Marteen (Netherlands Antilles) in the Caribbean as of June 12. These flights, initially under the charter system, will take place on Saturdays under the VARIG brand, although the Company has already applied for authorization from the authorities to operate regular flights.

"The new flight will increase the options for Brazilian tourists traveling to the Caribbean. In addition, we will be the only airline in the country flying between Brazil and Saint Marteen," declared Claudia Pagnano, GOL's Market Vice-President.

The flights will leave Sao Paulo International Airport/Guarulhos at 2:48 p.m. (local time) on Saturdays, with a stopover in Manaus, from where they will depart for Saint Marteen at 6:10 p.m., arriving at 9:30 p.m. (local time). The return flight will depart from Saint Marteen at 11:30 p.m. (local time), arriving in Manaus at 2:50 a.m. (local time) and in Guarulhos at 8:35 a.m. (local time) on Sunday.

In addition to the normal economy service, the flights will include Comfort class, which offers more leg room, hot meals, individual on-board entertainment, more privacy, a 150% SMILES mileage bonus, exclusive check-in facilities, and priority boarding and disembarking.

Initially, sales will be handled by tour operators with whom GOL maintains agreements.
