Similar to its planned increase in service from Buenos Aires - Ezeiza (EZE) to Caracas (CCS) in July, Aerolineas is adding more flights from Ezeiza to Bogota (BOG), going from the present three flights to four, on 02Jul12.
Also like the CCS service the aircraft type used will be the A340, which is a surprise to the editor of this blog because it seems like much too large an aircraft type for a route between two countries that do not have extensive commercial or social connections, nor is BOG a hub of an air carrier that is allied with AR for onward connections to the Caribbean, United States, Canada, Europe, etc. It would seem that AR's 737-800s would be better-suited to this route plus the 800's range should be able to cover the 2,900 mile / 4,650 km stage length, even with a full payload.
The BOG flight presently operates on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays with the new flight being added on Mondays. Departures and returns are on the same day with an early morning departure from EZE, arriving back at the Argentine airport at approx. 2000 or 2100 after a 1:15 turnaround in BOG.
