VARIG (acronym for Viação Aérea RIo-Grandense, Rio Grandean Airways) was the first airline founded in Brazil, in 1927. From 1965 until 1990, it was Brazil's leading airline, and virtually its only international one. Over the years, the airline flew all across the world, offering intercontinental flights to every continent. VARIG was the first airline in Latin America to operate MD-11 aircraft. The first two MD-11s, PP-VOP and PP-VOQ, were delivered to VARIG on November 12, 1991 and began flying on the Sao Paulo - Rio - Paris - Amsterdam route. Since then, the MD-11 has become the main VARIG aircraft for international long-haul flights.
