These routes are for local and business travelers plus foreign tourists looking to fish in Corrientes, for example. There is also a route to the resort city of Necochea in southwestern Buenos Aires province.
The routes and frequencies flown include:
Buenos Aires Aeroparque (AEP) - Parana, Entre Rios (PRA), 6x/weekly
Buenos Aires Aeroparque (AEP) - Parana, Entre Rios (PRA) - Goya, Corrientes (OYA), 1x/weekly

The airline is planning to soon extend flights from Goya (OYA) to Reconquista (RCQ) and Mercedes (MDX) near the Esteros del Ibera marshlands tourist area.
LAER dates back to 1967 and has flown aircraft as diverse as the Argentine small transport FMA IA-50 Guarani II, Jetstream 31, ATR-42-320, and F.28-1000.
