Fly BQB Takeover By Amaszonas

Fri Sep 11, 2015 9:42 pm

Good day,
Uruguay´s FlyBQB stopped flying between Buenos Aires and Montevideo (among other routes) a while ago. It was announced that Amaszonas from Bolivia would be taking over the route, using some of BQB´s ATRs. Does anyone from the region know more? It doesn´t seem that this has happened yet...

Have a nice day!

From what I know all ATRs are still parked in Punta del Este and have been for a long time now.

Strange, because there were announcements they would take over the route and flying in May and then nothing happened apparently.

They are flying the MVD-ASU route, using Amaszonas CRJ equipment and crews and BQB´s 5Q code. This has been going on for a while, and things have been pretty stagnant plans wise since.

They had plans on operating MVD-AEP with the CRJ, and also to get uruguayan crews to operate these flights in an "Amaszonas Uruguay" sense, but none of that has happened.

In my personal opinion, I think the arrangement of Amaszonas using the 5Q code to operate foreign registered aircraft with foreign crews out of MVD, at a time in which the laboral prospects of uruguayan crews are pretty dismal, practically non-existant in the country (ever since PU folded) isn´t right.

It would be alright if it´s a temporary thing until a proper Amaszonas Uruguay gets established, but I am not sure if that will ever happen.

Regards,

Thanks PlunaCRJ... By the way, do you know what is happening at Alas Uruguay? Are they taking off soon? Good old times when Pluna flew their 707s and 737s... Saludos al Uruguay!
