Amaszonas airline began its fleet expansion and modernization project last week when it received the first of two Embraer E190 jets. The model will replace the Canadian 50-seat Bombardier CRJ-200 aircraft offering more than double the capacity. The aircraft are configured to carry 112 passengers and will fly in September on local routes initially.

In a statement, Amaszonas explained that “the aircraft will await the legal procedures of the competent authorities until obtaining the release of operational certificates.” The first jet landed at the company’s Santa Cruz de La Sierra headquarters displaying a new livery that even includes the airline’s name change, now called “AMAS Bolivia” in allusion to the stylized heart that became its new logo and also to the term “amor” in Spanish.

Flights to Brazil

The Bolivian airline, which has subsidiaries in other countries of the continent and has operated in Brazil on other occasions, will fly between Santa Cruz de La Sierra and Rio de Janeiro and Foz do Iguaçu from December 15 with three weekly frequencies.

Last year, Amaszonas Paraguay operated flights between Asunción and Sao Paulo and even announced frequencies to other Brazilian cities that were not started.
