Argentina and Uruguay Inaugurate New “Air Bridge”

BUENOS AIRES – Argentine Tourism Minister Gustavo Santos and Uruguay’s ambassador in Buenos Aires hailed the inauguration of Uruguayan airline Alas’ service between Montevideo and the Argentine capital.

The new flights will improve “connectivity” between the two countries, Santos said during an event at the official residence of Uruguayan envoy Hector Lescano.

Uruguay has been without a commercial air carrier since 2013, when state-run Pluna shut down amid financial troubles.

Most of the 100-strong Alas staff are former Pluna employees.

Santos said initiatives such as Alas will contribute to efforts to boost trade and tourism within the Mercosur bloc: Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay and Venezuela.

“The creation of Alas is beneficial for tourism and also for trade, integration and the union of peoples,” the Argentine tourism minister said.

The launch of the new airline is “a crucial step” toward expanding travel connections among the countries in the region, Lescano said.
