The major airlines that operate routes linking Argentina and the United States have announced new frequencies to fly between the two countries. These increases are attributed to the high demand for vaccination flights.
The National Civil Aviation Administration (ANAC) confirmed it allowed 28 weekly frequencies with the US for June, which is a 33% increase compared to May.
American Airlines reactivated this weekend the Buenos Aires-New York route that had been interrupted since March last year due to the pandemic. The company approved four direct weekly flights with a capacity of 273 passengers. Other flights for this month will be on June 21, 24, 25, 29 and 30.
As for Miami, American Airlines maintains a daily frequency, with Boeing 777-300ER planes seating 304 passengers. With regards to Dallas, the company has consolidated additional flights of up to 17 flights per month.
For its part, Argentine Airlines will resume its route with New York from July 19, offering flights on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 10:30 pm. As for the replay, the two planes will leave New York at 2:45 pm (New York time).
Additionally, the national carrier has added new frequencies to the Buenos Aires-Miami route for the month of June. It has thus moved from three weekly flights to nine, offering two on Thursday and Sunday, and one on the rest of the days.
According to REPORTUR.com.ar, the interest of Argentines to travel to the United States to receive some vaccinations against Covid-19, and combine them with a few days of vacation, remains high. (What you need to know about vaccine tourism in the USA)
