Following a radical reorganisation during 2006, VRG is a downsized Varig, now operating flights to 15 cities within Brazil and four international destinations. The airline serves Brasilia, Manaus, Fernando de Noronha, Fortaleza, Recife, Salvador, Belo Horizonte, Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo,Vitoria, Curitiba, Florianopolis, Londrina and Portp Alegre. Outside Brazil VRG Airlines operates flights to Frankfurt, Toronto, Buenos Aires, Bogota and Caracas.
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 VRG recover from the recent troubles and re-emerge as a new airline brand, befitting the proud history of Varig. 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 airline,
VRG Airlines current fleet consists of 15 Boeing 737’s, 2 MD-11’s and 1 Boeing 767-300ER
