Azul Uruguay continues certification process - expected to fly to 5 cities in Argentina and Brazil

Azul Uruguay continues its certification process in relative silence as it prepares to start up operations in September or October of this year with four ATR-72-600's and one Embraer 190/195 from Montevideo (MVD) to five cities in Argentina and Brazil. 

The airline intends to fly the ATR-72-600's once daily each to Cordoba (COR), Rosario (ROS) and Porto Alegre (POA) and five times daily on the prized and highly-profitable Buenos Aires Aeroparque (AEP) route.  The Embraer 190/195 will be used to service Campinas Viracopos (VCP), located some 60 miles / 100km from Sao Paulo due to the stage length being excessive for the ATR-72-600's.

Editor's Note:

One wonders what will happen on the Montevideo (MVD) - Buenos Aires Aeroparque (AEP) "Air Bridge" with three airlines each operating multiple daily flights on the route; Aerolineas Argentinas, Amaszonas Uruguay and Azul Uruguay.  This brings back memories of the 1970's when the two capitals were linked by Aerolineas with 737-200's and F-28's, Austral with YS-11's and PLUNA with Viscounts.  Will there be room for all three of today's airlines on this route ?
