There's already one VLO M11F at VEM/GIG that is being painted with the new colours (PR-LGE).

I'm not sure I like the wavy cheat line, but the logo on the tail looks cool! Something to differentiate both companies.

I agree with you all the way, but the New VARIG really needs to have a new identity, there was a scheme posted here on this site with a similar style to TAP when the rumours were that they were going to buy VARIG it was sweet.

Beautiful, but tail logo aside, it can hardly be called new livery, just an upfrade to me

Yes, and also will increase VarigLog network.

Hi Felipe,

do you have any more informations regarding the new destinations?

I think the 757 is the perfect aircraft for intra-america traffic!

Hello Avianca, I'm not Felipe but I'll try to answer that.

Heard they would use them indeed for intra-america destinations such as EZE and SCL. Not sure if I heard of BOG or CCS but I think it would be a nice pick too.

Hello AF086,

thank you very much for the intresting info.... indeed service to CCS would be very nice, they are currently offering the daily service to and from CCS via the Varig pax flight (B.767-300) and 1 x weekly (I think saturday) a MD11-F flight to JFK-GRU....

YUCK, same boring scheme. I thought they were totally separate companies now?

I like the tail logo better now, but still one ugly paintscheme.

This 'update' makes no difference to improve the airline's look.

Looks good... Still, being owned by the same parent company I don't think it's really a smart move to switch the tail logo.

Anyway concerning the livery, they stuck to the philosophy 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' - I still think that the 1997 livery launched with PP-VPA is and remains the best one - and just changed small details (something that was agreed on when Varig was bought by MP if I'm not mistaken). I have to admit, at first I wasn't really into the wavy colors, now I think they are really cool and a nice touch. I'm not to fond of the billboard titles though... Never have been as they don't suite every airline.

Happy Landings!

I like it but given all the problems VARIG has has, I though that a completely new paint job for both might have been in order although I appreciate cost is an issue here....but new start and all that....??
