Aerolíneas Argentinas has revealed plans to expand its domestic and international network. The Buenos Aires-based flag carrier will add an additional weekly rotation from the Argentine capital to Barcelona from June – increasing the total to five – and will also increase its Rome link to four-times weekly. These are in addition to the existing daily service to Madrid.
Elsewhere, starting in July, Aerolíneas will provide 18% more seats on domestic flights as part of an aggressive plan to increase connectivity in the South American nation. Network changes will include more direct flights from the capital to the provinces along with a rise in the number of services linking the north and south of the country. This includes more frequencies on routes such as Córdoba-Ushuaia, along with new flights from Rosario to Mendoza and Córdoba to Jujuy among others.
“We will continue offering the greatest connectivity in Argentina, increasing tourism and improving the experience of travellers both from Argentina as well as those from abroad, adding new routes to the domestic network and combined with services to cities around the world” said Guillermo Rudaeff, director general for Europe of Aerolíneas Argentinas. He added that the carrier was aiming to boost its Buenos Aires/Ezeiza hub as well as developing Cordoba and Rosario as focus cities.
