A Spanish airline has announced that investment in Brazil's second largest carrier GOL will open up new tourist and business routes in the Latin American country.

The deal will allow Iberia's customers to fly directly from Madrid to Rio de Janeiro, before transferring to one of GOL's domestic flights.

It will mean that Spanish flyers will now have easier access to locations throughout Brazil, including Florianopolis, Natal and Bahia.

A release from Iberia said: "Brazil is one of the most important markets for Iberia."

The Spanish airline has operated flights to Brazil since 1946 and now carries around 470,000 passengers a year between the two countries, although by September 2009 it had almost surpassed its figures for the whole of 2008.

Now that the deal has been announced, it needs to be approved by Brazil's aviation authority ANAC.

Iberia will hope the deal can increase its passenger numbers and profits after it posted a second quarter loss of €72 million (£65 million) earlier this year.ADNFCR-1477-ID-19418733-ADNFCR
