São Paulo – GOL Linhas Aéreas Inteligentes S.A. (NYSE: GOL and BMF&BOVESPA: GOLL4), the largest low-cost and low-fare airline in Latin America, announced today that it has joined the International Air Transport Association (IATA), an international trade body, representing approximately 230 airlines comprising 93% of scheduled international air traffic.

As a member, GOL will take part in global discussions and vote on issues regarding the development of the commercial aviation industry. GOL will also participate in forums and have access to updated studies and indicators. Additionally, GOL will have full member voting rights, which provides the Company with a voice in setting industry-wide standards that govern airline operations in order to ensure passenger safety. IATA also promotes constructive debate on improving operational efficiency and infrastructure.

„We are delighted to be part of IATA. Our membership comes at a very important moment for industry, which is undergoing profound changes, as well as our company, as we continue to increase our international presence via code-share agreements with leading carriers“, says Constantino de Oliveira Junior, GOL’s president.

GOL has already enacted a number of changes in preparation of joining the association, including IOSA (IATA Operational Safety Audit) registration from IATA. The IOSA certificate is recognized as the global standard for assessing airlines‘ operational safety and controls, and is indispensable to an aviation company to be admitted as a full member of the association.
