VARIG begins sales to Santiago

VRG Linhas Aéreas S.A., which operates the VARIG brand, announces that it has started selling tickets for VARIG’s newest route: São Paulo - Santiago, Chile.  “Launching the São Paulo - Santiago route will further expand VARIG’s network in South America, where we already offer direct flights to Bogotá, Buenos Aires and Caracas,” said Lincoln Amano, VARIG’s Commercial Director.

“Our flight network aims to provide passengers with more travel options within South America and to Europe and North America as well, using Brazil as a natural connecting point.”  In addition to Bogotá, Buenos Aires and Caracas, VARIG offers international services to London Heathrow, Frankfurt, Paris and Rome. It also plans to launch flights to Mexico City, Montevideo and Madrid by year end.
