Syndicato Condor was a subsidiary of Luftansa established in Rio de Janiero in 1927. The company issued private stamps for its airmail contract with the Brazilian government; stamps bearing the company name paid the authorized airmail surtax. In 1930 the company entered into a contract with Lloyd Aereo Boliviano (South America's second oldest airline after Columbia's Avianca) providing services between Brazil and Bolivia. In 1943 the company became Cruziero (Servicos Aereos Cruziero do Sul).
