Aerolineas Argentinas route news from the last couple of months:
New Rio Hondo Flights
The airline's smaller sister carrier, Austral, started EMB-190 service from Buenos Aires Aeroparque (AEP) to Rio Hondo (RHD) on 24Aug12 with twice-weekly flights on Fridays and Sundays. The destination is known for its thermal hot springs resort. The two flights were transferred from the airport of the nearby provincial capital, also named Santiago del Estero (SDE).
The Rio Hondo airport is a brand-new facility which was inaugurated on 25Jul12, a few days before the first Austral flight. There was some debate about the need for the new airport since it is located only 37 miles (60km) from Santiago del Estero and 55 miles (90km) from Tucuman, an important northwestern city.
Second Daily Miami Flight
Aerolineas Argentinas is introducing a second daily Buenos Aires Ezeiza (EZE) - Miami (MIA) flight on 08Dec12 for the southern hemisphere summer season. The flight, AR1304, will depart EZE in the morning, arriving in MIA the same afternoon and fly back overnight to EZE as AR1305.
The airline's Miami service will then look like this:
Routing Dep Arr Equipment Days
AR1304 EZEMIA 1030 1740
AR1302 EZEMIA 2315 0625+1 A340-300
AR1303 MIAEZE 0845 1945 A340-300 Daily
AR1305 MIAEZE 1945 0645+1 A340-300 Daily
Aerolineas and probably sister carrier Austral will fly summer charter service, primarily from Buenos Aires Ezeiza (EZE) to the beach destinations of Cancun (CUN) Mexico, and Rio de Janeiro (GIG), Florianopolis (FLN), Porto Seguro (BPS) and Salvador (SSA), all in Brazil. Service will likely be with AR 737-700's and 737-800's and possibly AU EMB-190's too.
