The Brazilian airline VRG is busy expanding routes and asserting itself into broader markets, and the new route to the UK is the feather in the expansion cap for the airline's commercial director, Lincoln Amano. The first flight that will connect Rio De Janeiro, Sao Paulo and London will take off on October 28th, making it the next European country after France, Italy, Spain and Germany VRG now offers flights to. "The launch of London flights on October 28 is an important step in VRG's expanding international route network, which currently includes flights to key European cities in France, Italy and Germany. By December of this year, we will provide additional services to Europe through Madrid, Spain as well as to Latin America, through flights to Mexico City, Mexico; Montevideo, Uruguay; and Santiago, Chile," Amano recently said. The air link between Brazil and the UK comes after the two countries have become cozier in terms of trade as well as tourism. The UK is now number 13 in the ranks of Brazil's trading partners and British tourist numbers in Brazil were up 9% last year.
