SÃO PAULO, April 29, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — GOL Linhas Aéreas Inteligentes S.A. (NYSE: GOL and B3: GOLL4), («GOL» or «Company»), Brazil’s largest domestic airline, provides an Investor Update. All information is presented in Brazilian Reais (R$). The information below is preliminary and unaudited.
Historically, the 2nd quarter of the year is a transition period to low season demand and due to the worsening of the pandemic and the increase in restrictions of circulation imposed by states, GOL’s current capacity planning scenario assumes a 40% reduction in 2Q21 compared to 1Q21. To adapt operating costs to current levels of sales and demand, GOL will operate 63 aircraft in its network, which will represent 70% of the average fleet operated at the end of 4Q20 and 377% or 3.8x higher compared to the same quarter of 2020. Revenue for the quarter ended June 2021 is expected to decrease approximately 35% compared to the quarter ended March 2021.
GOL expects to end 2Q21 with R$4.2 billion in liquidity and R$14.8 billion in adjusted net debt. Several important initiatives are relevant to ensure that the Company maintains liquidity at the levels expected for the end of 2Q21.
