The excellent Uruguayan aviation blog, Aviacion Civil Uruguaya, reports that BQB Lineas Aereas' third ATR-72, CX-LFL (c/n 570), a -212A model, arrived at Montevideo (MVD) Carrasco International Airport on 22Jan13.  The aircraft previously flew for Air Nostrum since its delivery to the Spanish carrier in 1999.

BQB is using the new aircraft to serve new routes that the airline has taken over from the now-defunct PLUNA, such as Montevideo (MVD) - Asuncion (ASU).
