On March 1987 VARIG received its first Boeing 767-200ER (Extended Range) to operate in international lines. The B767-200ER, prefix PP-VNN, arrived directly from factory and was the first delivered with General Electric CF6-80C2B2 engines, which means advanced technology, greater efficiency and less fuel consumption. These aircrafts are equipped with the FMSCS (Flight Management System). FMSCS includes a database with all information on aircraft’s performance and, when necessary, this information are quickly passed to technical crew. This is one of the most modern systems today available to commercial aviation.
All six Boeing 767-241ER were delivered to VARIG between July and August, 1987. They operated mainly on international routes to Latin America or charter flights between Brazil’s northeast region and Europe. Some of the cities served by the B767-200ER were Santiago, Lima, La Paz, Quito, Guayaquil, San José and Lisbon.
In 2003 all Boeing 767-200ER were returned and replaced by Boeing 767-300ER and MD-11.
