According to Paraguayan press reports, Macair, the Argentine aircraft charter and airline subservice company based out of Buenos Aires Aeroparque (AEP), will start flying from Resistencia (RES) in northeastern Argentina to the Paraguayan capital Asuncion (ASU) three-times weekly, effective 15Jan13.  

The start of service to Asuncion (ASU) is intended to be a first step into the Paraguayan market with the company expected to start flying domestically from Asuncion (ASU) to Ciudad del Este (AGT) in eastern Paraguay near the "Triple Frontier" area where Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay all meet, plus Asuncion (ASU) to Encarnacion (ENO) in the southern part of the country, near Posadas, Argentina.

Further services might be operated from Asuncion (ASU) to Pedro Juan Caballero (PJC) in north central Paraguay and Saltos del Guairá in the northeastern region of the country. 

Macair has a fleet of business jets, including Learjets, available for charter plus at least four active 19-seat Jetstream 32EP's that it operates for AeroChaco and LAER (Lineas Aereas Entre Rios) out of the provinces of the same names located north of Buenos Aires.  The company will presumably also use the Jetstreams on the new Paraguayan routes.
