Varig Ends Service To Cordoba

Tue Oct 08, 2002 10:37 pm

Today is the last day that Varig will operate service to Cordoba, Argentina. This will be the third city in Argentina that Varig has discontinued service to in the past year (after Mendoza, Rosario). Varig had been operating GIG-GRU-ASU-COR service. Begining tomorrow Varig will operate GIG-GRU-ASU-EZE service.

This will also leave Cordoba with only 1 international destination - Santiago (operated by Lan Chile 11 times a week).

That is really unfortunate. Hopefully Cordoba will gain another international destination soon if Southern Winds goes ahead with MIA-COR non-stop flights.

Also Varig has ended SSA-MIA service and reduced nonstop GIG-MIA service to once a week (it will be increased to twice a week on dec. 19)

Varig also ends two non-stop flights EZE GIG.Almost all flights to Brazil are via GRU.
It is really difficult for most of us to fly outside the country,because the relation peso dollar.
