Gol Linhas Aéreas Inteligentes S.A. (Gol Transportes Aéreos) (São Paulo), as we previously reported, unveiled a new look yesterday (July 15).
The pictured Boeing 737-8EH PR-GXZ (msn 40739) (above) was presented to the media and guests at the Gol Maintenance Center at Confins International Airport at Belo Horizonte (CNF/SBCF). CNF is the Gol’s main maintenance center.

In addition to the new visual identity (everything will change, from the website to the aircraft, through uniforms, napkins, cups, tickets etc.), the company presented the new seats, now in ecological leather.

The pictured PR-GXZ is also the 100th 737NG purchased directly from Boeing. Gol has a total fleet of 140 aircraft. Gol also has 15 737NG to be delivered through 2018, which can be converted to the newer 737 MAX.
In 2018, Gol will receive the first 737 MAX. In all, 100 units were purchased.
Finally, Gol announced a partnership with Go Go to offer a complete inflight entertainment system with on demand Wi-Fi content and streaming – all offered free in a basic page or premium paid packages.
