Bolivia's regional airline and Bombardier CRJ200 operator Amaszonas has announced the launch of two new international and one new domestic destinations for September, when it will begin to serve Iquique in Chile, Montevideo in Uruguay as well as Oruro in Bolivia.
According to a company spokesman, the flights from Santa Cruz to the Uruguayan capital will start operating on 3 September and flights to Iquique via Oruro on 12 September. The airline will offer four weekly frequencies on each route.
The latter will be the first international international scheduled flight that the airport of Oruro will receive in more than half a century, after historic airline Panagra dropped the destination from its routes to the Southern cone.
Oruro, a mining town located on the Bolivian Altiplano, received a new passenger terminal in early 2013, which put it on the network map of several local airlines.
