GOL increases MAX-order
GOL has announced it has increased its orders for the MAX with another 28 aircraft. The additional aircraft will be used to accelerate the airline's fleet renewal and will be delivered before the end of 2022. All aircraft are B737-8s.
With this latest addition, GOL has in total committed to 98 B737-8s and 25 B737-10s. Last year, during the height of the Corona-pandemic, the airline scrapped 34 orders but has now clearly backtracked on this decision.
So far GOL has taken delivery of twelve B737-8s and expects to take delivery of at least another thirteen this year. The first B737-10 is expected to arrive in 2023. Next to the MAXs, GOL also operates 23 B737-700s and 93 B737-800s.
