Delta Air Lines has launched codeshare operations with GOL, one of Brazil's largest airlines, immediately adding 15 new destinations to its South American network.

Delta is now selling service on 56 GOL flights between Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Brasilia and 15 Brazilian destinations: Belem, Belo Horizonte, Cuiaba, Curitiba, Florianopolis, Fortaleza, Goiania, Iguassu Falls, Joao Pessoa, Navegantes, Porto Alegre, Recife, Salvador, Teresina and Vitoria.

The number of codeshare markets is expected to increase to more than 30 by summer, pending government approvals.

"Delta continues to grow its network in Latin America thanks to strong and visionary partners like GOL, allowing our customers to enjoy a seamless travel experience and an expanded network throughout Brazil," said Nicolas Ferri, Delta's vice president for Latin America and the Caribbean.

Delta currently offers 31 nonstop weekly flights between the United States and Brazil, including service between Atlanta and Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Brasilia; between New York-JFK and Sao Paulo; and between Detroit and Sao Paulo.

Delta's growth strategy in the Latin America region is also enhanced by the intent to bring Aerolineas Argentinas, the flag carrier of Argentina, as the second Latin American member of Delta's SkyTeam global airline alliance, benefiting Delta customers with increased access to and from South America and complementing existing SkyTeam member Aeromexico.
