US is home. Almost 24 hours to get back to middle USA. But they just added a direct flight to Miami so that will be better. - Jan 2021

Washington, DC. From Asuncion 5-6 hours to Panama or Sao Paolo, then 6 hours to Washington, D.C. Note that most flights in and out of the country internationally get you around difficult times like midnight, 2am, 5am. This was a pain, but by the airport is pretty small and simple. I heard recently that the cost of the parking has gone up but diplomats can park for free. - Jun 2019

USA. There is no longer a direct flight from Miami. Connections are usually through Peru or Panama. The whole trip (including normal layovers) is about 12-14 hours (Miami to Asuncion). - Aug 2018

Asuncion has a small airport and to date, no direct flights to the United States. You willl be most commonly routed through Sao Paulo, Lima or Buenos Aires depending on where you need to go in the U.S. Copa has good connections via Panama which works well for west coast and other South American destinations. - Jun 2018

Our home base is Ohio. We fly from Asuncion to Panama (usually) then the U.S. for our final connection to Ohio. It take about 24 hours (with layovers) to get home to Ohio but only 17 or 18 to get back because the connections are better. - May 2016
