Currently you can not upgrade the flash memory in the 2012 MBA. OtherWorldComputing is working on upgrades. Currently upgrades are only avail. for the pre 2012 models.

You can not put a regular hard drive or SSD into a 2012 MBA.

So for now, the answer is NO.

That means that a pre 2012 is possible? for example a 2011? Or I have to purchase a one with higher memory that I can affort?

Actually it looks like the 2012 Air SSD upgrade is now available.
Great news.

So yes, you can buy the 64GB 2012 model and upgrade it.
