MIAMI — With the traditional water canon salute, Buenos Aires welcomed the inaugural flight of Amaszonas Uruguay from Carrasco International Airport in Montevideo to Aeroparque Jorge Newbery.

The first flight operated by a Bombardier CRJ-200 (CX-SDU • MSN 7209) landed early this Wednesday with 50 guests, including journalists, travel agents and authorities, who were accompanied by the board of directors of Amaszonas Group, the holding company of the carrier.

The inaugural ceremony was modest but emotional, and it was attended by Uruguayan and Argentine government authorities.

“We are convinced that offer creates demand,” said Sergio de Urioste, President of Amaszonas group in Buenos Aires, noting that the airline will operate frequencies necessary “on demand,” which are expected to “create demand”.

The new Uruguayan airline plans to have a fleet of six 50-seat CRJ-200s, and offer up to 10 daily flights between Carrasco and Aeroparque. The carrier expects to operate other destinations in Brazil and seasonal flights to Punta del Este.

The airline will start scheduled regular service next October 5 with two daily frequencies. The 40-minute flights will depart from Carrasco at 07:55 and 20:00, with return flights from Aeroparque at 09:30 and 21:35, all local times.

    Most of them are former Mesa Airlines aircraft. Others come from Maersk Air and Comair.
