VRG launches flights to Madrid

VRG has began daily operations to its tenth international route: Sao Paulo-Madrid.

“The Madrid route is an important step in our international expansion plan, and will provide VRG’s customers with an additional hub for service throughout Europe,” says Lincoln Amano, VRG’s Commercial Director. The Company currently flies to Bogota, Colombia; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Caracas, Venezuela; Santiago, Chile; Frankfurt, Germany; London, England; Mexico City, Mexico; Paris, France; and Rome, Italy.

VRG’s decision to launch daily flights to Spain is based on the continued expansion in commercial and tourism relations between the two countries. In 2006, Spain imported 6.94% more goods and services from Brazil than the previous year, totaling approximately US$ 2.3 billion. Brazil imported approximately US$ 1.4 billion in goods and services from Spain in 2006, up 7.39% from 2005.
