Varig Airlines Following a radical reorganisation during 2006, a downsized Varig now operates to flights to 15 cities within Brazil and four international destinations. These include Brasilia, Manaus, Fernando de Noronha, Fortaleza, Recife, Salvador, Belo Horizonte, Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo,Vitoria, Curitiba, Florianopolis, Londrina and Portp Alegre. Outside Brazil Varig operate flights to Frankfurt, Toronto, Buenos Aires, Bogota and Caracas.
Sao Paulo based low cost airline GOL has announced the full integration of VARIG, the airline it purchased in 2007 into a single airline company. See full details by opening the related link below Varig has been around forever and was once the best South American airline with annual awards to prove it.
We, at Alternative Airlines, want to see Varig recover from the recent troubles and re-emerge as an airline befitting this great brand. Currently the network is very limited but if you’re looking for flights to Brazil from Europe, the Frankfurt service is great value, as is the service from Toronto.
We are pleased to confirm that Alternative Airlines have an immediate on-line booking facility with the new Varig.
