BQB - No Agreement with Iberia to Codeshare between MVD & MAD - Negotiating with other Airlines

It turns out that BQB Lineas Aereas' agreement to codeshare with Iberia on the Uruguayan airline's planned new service between Montevideo (MVD) and Madrid (MAD) in April was announced prematurely as the two carriers made no such agreement.  BQB is instead pursuing codesharing or similar partnerships with other European carriers to connect passengers through Madrid (MAD) to other European cities.

Separately, the airline announced plans to hire approx. 100 personnel, including pilots, flight attendants, mechanics and other ground personnel to operate the new route.

But will the service start without marketing agreements with other carriers being in place ?
