SAO PAULO, May 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- GOL Linhas Aereas Inteligentes S.A. (NYSE: GOL and BM&FBOVESPA: GOLL4), (S&P/Fitch: B+/B+, Moody's: B3), the largest low-cost and low-fare airline in Latin America, is the first Brazilian airline to use RNP-AR-Approach (Required Navigation Performance), which reduces noise, cuts flight times, saves fuel and, consequently, diminishes the atmospheric emission of polluting gases. Last Saturday, on May 5th 2012, the Company conducted the operational validation flight and obtained authorization from ANAC (Brazil's civil aviation authority) to utilize the RNP-AR-Approach procedures designed by DECEA (Airspace Control Department) at Santos Dumont Airport, in Rio de Janeiro. Currently, GOL is training the crew for this operation, expected to be fully implemented by July 2012.
