Pluna To Fly More To Spain And Brazil?

Wed Nov 16, 2005 6:45 am

The daily news "EL OBSERVADOR" says Uruguay and Spain has negotiated a new bilateral which allows PU to fly up to 8 times per week to Spain.
Also Spain grant approval for PU runs flights to Tenerife, with a limit of
12,000 pax per year (about 230 pax / week). PU has past plans to run a weekly service MVD-REC-TFN as well as to improve MVD service.

Good news to Brazil, and REC would receive a flight that could connect
easier to Buenos Aires for example (even be a weekly service), direct to
downtown airport (AEP).

The flight has been authorized by Brazilian Authorities and it keep the flight numbers and equipment:

PU 806 MVD-REC-TFN (fridays)
ETA REC 2015LT
ETD REC 2115LT
Operated by Boeing 757-200

PU 807 TFN-REC-MVD (saturdays)
ETA REC 1230LT
ETD REC 1330LT
Operated by Boeing 757-200

Does anyone has news on a new 763 for Pluna as well as if they already announce any other info on MVD-REC-TFN or improvements on MVD-MAD ?

The new 767 is under negotiation, I think that the problem is MONEY. AFAIK, MAD will receive 5 weekly flights, 3 via GIG and 2 non-stop (In the near future one or both flights will continue to FCO).

Varig still owns 49% of PU, but does not manage it anymore. So yes, it is still part of Varig Group.

Would be interesting to see what TAP and the new investors will do with that.

Maybe nothing. Varig's waiting the authorization of a Brazilian (?) judge to sell the 49% of Pluna. AFAIK, will be until Jan/06.
