According to Brazilian newspaper Globo, British Airways and GOL have agreed a frequent flyer partnership.
The article states that it is only for frequent flyer redemption and not earning. This seems highly unlikely, so I suspect that what we will actually see is a full codeshare combined with frequent flyer earn and burn benefits.
This is a sensible move for British Airways. Since LATAM left the oneworld alliance earlier this year, British Airways lost some connectivity options in South America.
GOL has a 40% share of the domestic market in Brazil. It has hubs in both Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro which would allow connections to and from British Airways services.
