From good sources, Varig will be back at Montevideo (MVD). Also JJ will start 05NOV so we'll have 2x daily PU MVD-GRU, JJ 1x daily MVD-GRU, Gol G3 2x daily MVD-POA, AR 4x MVD-POA, 4x MVD-GIG by PU will make the Brazil-Uruguay in a great competition for this summer.

"México iniciam-se no dia 27 de outubro, para Santiago no Chile serão iniciados dia 15 de novembro e para Montevidéu no Uruguai no dia 01 de novembro."

In other news PU will lunch a new 3x weekly MVD-GIG and 4x MVD-COR in December 07 already bookable in amadeus. 737 service.

G3 is already serving 2x daily MVD-POA-GRU.
In Chile, G3 is operating SCL-GRU, SCL-EZE-POA-FLN and LIM-SCL-EZE-GRU.
With that being said above, it is not exactly clear why RG is willing to duplicate the service (RG/G3) in both stations: SCL and MVD.

It makes sense to response the 4x weekly IB MVD-MAD.
Isn't PU already operating MVD-MAD some days as nonstop?

Quoting PU752 (Reply 1):
4x weekly AR POA-MVD

AR may try Buenos Aires-MVD-POA in order to keep AR EZE-POA as nonstop and face the direct service given by both JJ and G3 for EZE-POA.
Regards.

Yes, 3x MVD-MAD and 1x via GIG, but this is way to much for just one 763, PU is always late on its way to MAD and back and not to mention that in the long 12.5hrs flight PU is giving up a lot of cargo in order to not exceed the MTOW (max take off weight). They still trying to compete against IB, last month the average was 260pax for IB and 150 for PU.

I wonder the samething, for example in MVD, why doesnt G3 introduce another flight to MVD and make it 3x daily instead of RG product which at least in Uruguay G3 its much better positioned at the moment in terms of everything including advertising.

AR is not flying EZE-MVD-POA anymore, AR only offers EZE-POA-EZE nonstop now.

Correct, totally forgot about it, last flight was scheduled for October 6th.
EZE-POA operates daily ex.sunday and as you mentioned no longer stops at MVD.

It is very nice to see RG moving fast to resume service to long-haul destinations. I am glad RG is coming back to MEX in just a couple of days. We will get non-stop service from GRU with 763ERs right? OceanAir does not stand much of a chance on this route, and for AM fans this is good news because it will make fares go down a bit.
