Viação Aérea Arco-Íris

Viação Aérea Arco-Íris S.A.
Founded 1945
Commenced operations 1946
Ceased operations 1948
Operating bases São Paulo-Congonhas

Viação Aérea Arco-Íris S.A. was a Brazilian airline founded in 1945. Flight operations ceased in 1948.


Arco-Íris was founded in March 1945 and the first flight was operated on July 12, 1946 between São Paulo-Congonhas and cities within the states of São Paulo and Paraná, being the first carrier to serve Londrina.[1]

It was later sold to a group of entrepreneurs from Rio Grande do Sul, who moved its head-office to Caxias do Sul, right on the main operational area of Varig. For this reason, the new owners had extreme difficulty in establishing operations. Finally in 1950 Arco-Íris had its operational authorization cancelled.


Arco-Íris served the following cities:[2]
