GOL Linhas Aéreas’ debt with the Brazilian Air Force is one of the largest for the airline, which is in “Judicial Recovery” (Chapter 11) in the USA.

Weeks ago, the Airspace Control Department, DECEA, reported that there were several companies pending payment of the navigation fee. These fees are used for network maintenance that allows the safe operation of the Airspace.

GOL, before entering Chapter 11 into Judicial Recovery in the USA, had informed that it did not have any pending issues, with only Voepass and Total being identified as major debtors.

Now, with the list of creditors published, it has been shown that one of GOL’s biggest debts is with DECEA, in the order of US$222 million dollars, which translates into R$1.1 billion reais at the current exchange rate.

Not necessarily all of this amount is late fees, but it also includes fees that were still due when the company filed for Chapter 11.

The company did not explain how the debt reached this amount and only stated that it continues with its obligations and the Judicial Recovery plan.
