    As an uruguayan, is great to see getting home a brand new airliner.
    Moreover, in the last two years the national airline Pluna received seven new CRJ-900. It was the first time that an uruguayan airline bought unused planes.
    An this, it’s the second, and hopefully not the last.
    Best wishes for the national wings!

    Thank you for this update. If you can get a start-up date (first revenue flight) for me this will be important to capture this history. Thank you Leonardo.
