SÃO PAULO, Nov. 9, 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.

The pace of the recovery is expected to increase in 4Q21, supported by the growth of the country's vaccination rate, entry into Brazil's summer high season and the return of international flights. GOL's 4Q21 capacity plan is up by 29% over 4Q20. To meet expected demand, GOL will have 102 aircraft operating its network at the end of the period, representing 112% of the average fleet in 4Q20 and up by 36% over 3Q21.

We expect loyalty program revenue of over R$600 million in 4Q21 and the Company's consolidated revenue for 4Q21 is expected to increase around 40% year-on-year.

GOL expects to close 4Q21 with R$3.8 billion in liquidity and R$15.8 billion in adjusted net debt. We estimate that our frequent flyer program will achieve gross revenues of over R$2.5 billion in 2022.
