As Julie stated, Cruzeiro do Sul had, among others, 2 or 3 A300s flying across Brazil and to South American destins. Their fleet was composed by B737-200s and B727-100 as well, and they were incorporated by VARIG in the beggining of the past decade (1990's). They were the Brazilian 4th bigger airline.

Around 1980 Cruzeiro bought 4 A-300B4s that were operated 2 in Varig livery and 2 in Cruzeiro do Sul livery. A few years later Varig sold off the B4s and bought 10 767s 200/300ERs. Sometime after 1990 Cruzeiro was fully incorporated into Varig and no longer exists as an entity.
