** VARIG (acronym for Viação Aérea RIo-Grandense) was the first airline founded in Brazil in 1927. From 1965 until 1990 it was Brazil's leading and almost only international airline. In 2006 it was split into two companies informally known as "old" Varig - heir to the original airline and now defunct, and "new" Varig - a new company presently fully integrated into Gol Airlines.
