Uruguayan charter airline Alas Uruguay has launched its first commercial flights. The new airline was founded by former employees of PLUNA, the Uruguayan airline that went bankrupt in 2012. Alas Uruguay has absorbed 250 former PLUNA employees. The Alas Uruguay fleet comprises three Boeing 737-300 aircraft with 132 seats. Its first route will be Montevideo to Asunción, Paraguay, with the return flight stopping over in Punta del Este. The airfare to Asunción is 300 dollars (return). The airline will soon begin to offer flights to Buenos Aires, Río de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Santiago de Chile.
