Alas Uruguay Airline to Begin Operating This Week

MONTEVIDEO – Alas Uruguay airline, comprised of personnel from the bankrupt flag carrier Pluna, will begin operating this week with a flight from Montevideo to Asuncion, a company executive told EFE on Monday.

The flight will depart from the Carrosco international airport and tickets “are being sold just like those of any other airline,” said Sergio Riolfo, the firm’s airports and services manager.

Alas Uruguay “starting this week” is scheduled to “gradually” begin regular flights to destinations including Buenos Aires, Santiago, São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, and from Buenos Aires to the Uruguayan coastal resort of Punta del Este.

Pluna ceased operations in July 2012 due to financial problems, although most of its personnel remained in contact and, over time, gathered the necessary support to create Alas Uruguay.

In May 2014, the former employees formed a general partnership and reached an agreement with the government allowing them to gain access to a $15 million credit line from the Development Fund, which enabled them to launch Alas Uruguay.

Three Boeing 737-300 aircraft – which each can carry 132 passengers – make up the firm’s fleet after being acquired in recent months, two of them from Ukraine and the third from the United States.
