Brazilian low-cost carrier GOL Linhas Aereas has applied to the country's national civil aviation agency ANAC to operate regular services to the US.

GOL's decision to operate services to the US via Venezuela was "based on the results of internal feasibility studies and is in line with the company's business model", the carrier said.

The airline plans to operate a Sao Paolo Guarulhos-Caracas-Miami service five times weekly, using either Boeing 737-700s or -800s, without specifying a start date.

In February, ANAC approved GOL subsidiary VRG Linhas Aereas's request to operate 14 weekly services between Brazil and the US, without specifying destinations.
