ROUTE UPDATE: Amaszonas reportedly will start flying CRJ-200's from Montevideo (MVD) to Buenos Aires Aeroparque (AEP) & Asuncion (ASU) on 04May15

Aviacion News reported in its 23Apr15 online issue that, contrary to earlier reports, Amaszonas will start flying one of its own CRJ-200's instead of ex-BQB Lineas Aereas ATR-72's from Montevideo (MVD) to Buenos Aires Aeroparque (AEP) and Asuncion (ASU) on 04May15.  

Amaszonas purchased BQB's AOC (Air Operator Certificate) earlier this month and it was announced by several media outlets that the Bolivian carrier would start service from Montevideo (MVD) with former BQB aircraft while it went through the approvals process for operating its own planes from the Uruguayan capital. However, it now appears that Amaszonas will wet-lease one of its own CRJ-200's flown by its own crews to "Amaszonas Uruguay", a measure made easier because the Bolivian airline recently took delivery of it eighth CRJ-200.     
Editor's Note: 

One formidable obstacle for Amaszonas could be getting approval from the Argentine government to fly its own CRJ-200's to Aeroparque given that the present government has been very reluctant to allow new services by foreign carriers into Argentine airports.
