PLUNA performs test flight in Chile

PLUNA Lineas Aereas Uruguayas (Montevideo) on October 23, 2009 performed its first test flight inside Chilean territory. The overnight flight linked Santiago de Chile (SCL) with Punta Arenas (PUQ) as flight PU 441 carrying freight (newspapers, magazines and documents) in a seat container configuration. The company used Bombardier CRJ900 (CL-600-2D24) CX-CRB. The cargo was flown on behalf of SKY Cargo (a subsidiary of SKY Airline) thanks to an agreement with that Chilean company. PLUNA is planning to operate passenger flights in Chile starting in December and will use the same aircraft on the route Punta Arenas -Santiago.
