The state-run Argentine airline, Aerolineas Argentinas, has announced that it will resume its direct flights from Buenos Aires to New York that were terminated five years ago.
From 15th December 2013, the company will be offering a daily flight from Ezezia International Airport in Buenos Aires to New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport.
“The flights will be at night both ways, allowing for connections with the services provided by other SkyTeam strategic partners from New York, and with Aerolineas Argentinas’ flights from Terminal C at Ezeiza’s Ministro Pistarini International Airport, to and from Argentina and neighbouring countries,” the airline said in a statement.
Aerolineas Argentinas had suspended its direct flights to New York in April 2008 during the company’s private management by Spanish-based Grupo Marsans.
“The recovery of this flight route os part of the 2010-2014 Business Plan developed by the company and approved by Congress. New York is one of the three main international destinations for Argentine passengers,” said Aerolineas Argentinas.
Currently, the service is only provided by the US carrier American Airlines. United Airlines has announced it will suspend its direct flights to and from New York in September, citing low demand.
