ROUTE UPDATE: Austral to operate to Parana (PRA) after a 25-year absence

Austral will resume flights to Parana (PRA), a city of 400,000 people in Argentina's Entre Rios province across the Parana River from the city of Santa Fe, after a 25-year absence.  The airline last operated to Parana with BAC 1-11's in 1988.  

Buenos Aires Aeroparque (AEP) - Parana (PRA) service will be flown once daily in each direction with Austral's E-190's effective 01Mar14.  

Entre Rios province has its own airline, LAER (Lineas Aereas Entre Rios), that once operated the FMA IA-50 Guarani II (an Argentine transport aircraft), Jetstream 32's, and even the ATR-42 and F.28-4000.  Today the airline's services are flown by Macair Jetstream 32's which fly a few routes from Parana (PRA), including to Buenos Aires Aeroparque (AEP).
