ROUTE UPDATES: Cordoba (COR) - Aerolineas Argentinas - More New Routes & Summer Charters
More Cordoba (COR) route news:
* Aerolineas Argentinas - Cordoba (COR) - Porto Seguro (BPS) - eff 09Sep16
The route will be operated 1x/weekly using 737-800's. This type of route to a Brazilian beach resort is normally operated as a seasonal summer service but the airline is getting an early start on it this year.
* Aerolineas Argentinas - Cordoba (COR) - Rio Cuarto (RCU) - Buenos Aires Aeroparque (AEP) round-trip - eff 11Sep16
This service will be flown 6x/weekly using Austral E190's departing Cordoba (COR) in the early morning, stopping in Rio Cuarto (RCU), and continuing to Buenos Aires Aeroparque (AEP), arriving there at 9:10am. The return journey is the same routing in reverse departing Aeroparque to Rio Cuarto and Cordoba at 8:25pm, making for very convenient daytrip possibilities for Rio Cuarto residents traveling to Buenos Aires for business or other reasons.
The Rio Cuarto (RCU) - Buenos Aires Aeroparque (AEP) route was served by Sol Lineas Aereas using their Saab 340's during approx. 2008 - 2011 and also Aerolineas Argentinas in decades past. Rio Cuarto (RCU) - Cordoba (COR) was served for a short time by Southern Winds using their CRJ-200's in the late 1990's.
* Aerolineas Argentinas - Cordoba (COR) to Florianopolis (FLN) and Salvador de Bahia (SSA) - eff December 2016 / January 2017
Aerolineas has already confirmed its southern hemisphere summer 2017 charters from Cordoba (COR) to Brazil, probably using 737-700's or 800's due to range considerations (not Austral E190's due to lack of range when carrying a full payload).
No word yet on Cordoba (COR) to Mar del Plata (MDQ) and Cancun (CUN) charters which were operated in summer 2016 using Austral E190's and Aerolineas A340-300's, respectively.
