LISBON, March 14 (Reuters) - EuroAtlantic Airways has offered to buy 20 percent of Brazilian carrier Varig , the group said on Monday.

Euroatlantic, whose main shareholder is Portuguese investor Tomaz Metello, delivered the proposal to the Brazilian government, the state development bank BNDES and to Varig.

EuroAtlantic Airways said in a statement it had an "excellent relationship" with Varig. As part of a consortium with Varig euroAtlantic has two Boeing 767-300ER airliners and the group could increase the number shortly, it said.

The euroAtlantic statement gave no details about the proposal.


20% is the limit allowed under Brazilian law for foreign ownership of Brazilian companies.

Now it's official. Hope they acquire the 20% stake in RG and help improve the airline finacial situation.

It is very nice to see that there is more interest in RG than expected. Whomever the Fundaçao and the government sell the airline too, I only wish them all the best.

Next flights: MEX-GRU (AM 77E), GRU-GIG (JJ A320), SDU-CGH (G3 73H), GRU-MEX (JJ A332).
