Aerolíneas Argentinas resumes regular international flights

Argentina’s state airline announces return of several regular routes which had been suspended due to coronavirus pandemic. Price of ticket now includes medical insurance for positive Covid-19 diagnosis abroad, says flagship carrier.

Argentina’s state airline Aerolíneas Argentinas has announced that it will restart regular flights to a host of international destinations, including New York City, Cancún, Punta Cana and Salvador de Bahía.

A press release from Argentina’s flagship carrier also revealed that each ticket purchased with the firm will include medical insurance for a positive Covid-19 diagnosis overseas. 

"All tickets to international destinations purchased between November 2 and April 2, 2021 will include Assist Card insurance for a positive diagnosis of Covid-19 abroad, which is a requirement that many countries ask as a mandatory condition for entry into their territories," the company said in a statement.

Aerolíneas’ unveiling of its offerings for the summer season included a significant increase in supply and frequencies to international destinations. As well as the aforementioned locations, regular flights to Rome and Bogotá will also be available, "destinations that the company had to suspend due to restrictions due to the pandemic or that operated only as special repatriation flights," said the company. 

Company President Pablo Ceriani said he was delighted by the news.

"With these flights we have the opportunity to return to some of the objectives that we set ourselves at the beginning of the [airline’s] management and that have to do with strengthening the international network,” he said.

“It is important for the company and for the country to continue taking steps towards the normalisation of activity,” added Ceriani.
