Aerolíneas will offers two frequencies six times per week. The first flight will leave from EZE at 8:20 arriving at 10:15 into ASU. The second flight departs from AEP at 14:05 vía RES (Resistencia). In both flights Aerolíneas will use a Boeing 737-500.

Interesting is the second flight leaving from AEP.

The routes to ASU will be:

AR1260 EZE- ASU returning as AR1761 ASU-RES-AEP
AR1760 AEP-RES-ASU returning as AR1261 ASU-EZE.

Great news! This is a very good thing for ASU, which has such limited service now.

Quoting USADreamliner (Thread starter):

Will PU participate in the codeshare agreement altogether with PZ and AR?

What about traffic rights between ASU-RES and vice versa?

As a flag carrier Aerolineas Argentinas has no problem to move passenger from Asuncion to Resistencia and Resistencia to Asuncion.

Probably won't, PU already codeshares with PZ on the daily ASU-EZE-MVD service with their F-100s.

I've got to believe that AR is hoping to pick up some traffic from North America on these flights, which would explain a morning departure from and afternoon arrival at EZE (instead of AEP). Both the JFK and MIA flights arrive plenty early to make that 0830 departure (the exact time they arrive varies seasonally). AA has been trying to re-enter MIA-ASU for some time, but as long as that stays up in the air, this seems like a good opportunity for AR.

Great news for Paraguay! Nice to see AR comeback to ASU, Hopefully AA will come back too after the government eliminates the taxes.

AR also may try to face G3 in their ASU-EZE and vice versa.
Passengers from North America may find an easy way flying to GRU (TAM: JJ) and then immediately connecting to ASU (Tam Mercosur: PZ).
North America to ASU means a backtrack through EZE, but it seems the only way for AR to catch North American passengers on the way to Paraguay, as you posted out.

Could AA support daily operations to the USA in order to operate head to head with PZ-JJ system?
Consider ASU-GRU on PZ and then GRU to the USA on JJ.

There's also the possibility of flying LA and connecting over SCL (LA codeshares on the PZ ASU-SCL service), but it involves a 4+ hour connection on the way down and a longer connection on the way back. Connecting through GRU is probably the best bet, though the PZ flight GRU-ASU only arrives 25 minutes before the AR flight will.

I find this really hard to actually happen, AA always had bad loads on the ASU route even though it was via GRU and from what I heard the flight barely covered the ops cost and it was mostly a cargo profit.........Im really looking forward to see how a MIA-ASU 757 3x weekly works....

What's going on with the travel agent commission issue?

AA will not return there until the government remove those commissions (6% IIRC) , as far as I know.

Yeah, that's what I know too. I wonder if there's been any progress. As my friends in Chile might say,

AA volvera a ASU cuando paguen los bomberos

(or, for my English-speaking friends, AA will be back in ASU when pigs fly.)
