Star Up, parent of Peruvian BAe 146 operator StarPerú, has signed a memorandum of understanding with Chile’s Latin American Wings (LAW) under which the two airlines would combine their operations. LAW operates four Boeing 737-300s; it had been a charter airline until recently, but launched scheduled operations in March. Under the MoU, the two airlines will conduct legal and financial due diligence, leading to a formal agreement within a month. The combined airline would share aircraft and expand their joint network. StarPerú currently operates nine BAe 146s: two series 100s, four series 200s, two series 300s, and one series 200QT freighter. It also has two Bombardier CRJ-100s.
