Brazilian Gol Flies to Aruba and Curacao

Filed under: Airline News, Travel and Tourism 

Brazilian Airline Gol saw a demand on it route network grow by 32.1% in January over the same period last year (31.4% in the domestic market and 36.9% in the international market). It was the second consecutive month to record a year-on-year upturn.

According to the company, the key factor behind the upturn was the improved economic scenario in Brazil and South America, especially in regard to consumer confidence, and Gol’s strategic positioning in its operational markets.

Gol points out some of the factors they see contributing to the growth: high flight frequency between main airports, rewarding clients who schedule their trips in advance with lower fares, encouraging demand and reducing the number of available seats on flights where advanced booking is rare.

Specifically in regard to the international market, they say that the increase in demand was also due to adjustments to the international route network, which now includes new routes from Brazil to the Caribbean with flights to Aruba and Curacao and the integration of Gol’s and VRG’s reservation systems in January 2009.

Demand grew by 8.5% over December 2009 (5.3% in the domestic market and 35.3% in the international market). The international market growth drivers also included the 19.1% appreciation of the Brazilian real against the dollar over January 2009, which was a key factor that contributed positively to this growth, and the new Caribbean routes, which reached their sales peak in January.

As a result, the Company delivered a total load factor of 77.9% in January 2010 (77.3% in the domestic market and 81.8% in the international market), and the international market was 24.5 percentage points more than the 57.3% recorded in January 2009, and 11.5 percentage points up on the 70.3% registered in December 2009.

You’ll always find plenty of good reasons to marry in Aruba or Curaçao thanks to the beauty of these islands and their incredible year-around weather–but now the two of you will find five more great reasons: a free five-night honeymoon.

If you book your wedding at the Renaissance Resorts in Aruba or Curaçao, you’ll receive a free five-night honeymoon at either resort! This “Double Your Paradise” promotion can be used in conjunction with any existing package or promotion that is offered at the time of the booking–all adding up to a significant savings.

With this package, you’ve got the option to spend your wedding and honeymoon at the same resort or wed at one and then hop over and honeymoon at the other. (That’s a great option for sharing your wedding joy with guests…but then heading out for a romantic honeymoon!)

Aruba: At the Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino, the bride and groom can treat their guests to a private island wedding ceremony and reception on the resort’s 40-acre Renaissance Island.

Curaçao: Couples can opt to wed at the Renaissance Curaçao Resort & Casino, the first new full-service, branded hotel to open in the Dutch Caribbean in 15 years. The resort’s Infinity Beach Club, located on a 19th century fort, boasts a private elevated beach with views of the Caribbean Sea.

“Our resorts in Aruba and Curaçao offer two distinct experiences, much like the two islands,” said Janien Huistra, Director of Sales and Marketing for the Renaissance Aruba and Renaissance Curaçao Resort & Casino. “We wanted to find a way to allow guests to celebrate their union at one resort and then enjoy a romantic honeymoon
- and a completely different experience – at the other. However, guests have the option to have both at the same property; couples are free to choose the combination they want.”

The Details: Guests must book 75 consecutive revenue-generating nights by December 31, 2009 and travel for the ceremony by December 31, 2010. Blackout dates apply to the free honeymoon, which may be taken any time during the travel window – up to one year after the wedding.
