Aerolineas Argentinas Update
Aerolineas Argentinas CCO Diego Garcia discusses how the Argentinean market is changing as several new start-ups launch domestic services, including LCCs. Aerolineas views the changes positively as the new liberal aviation policy adopted by the government is expected to drive a doubling of total traffic in Argentina from 2015 to 2019 including 50% growth for Aerolineas. Mr Garcia said Aerolineas is already halfway to meeting this target, having achieved 25% growth in the last year and a half. Aerolineas is confident it can compete with LCCs in the domestic market and plans to further strengthen its position in the international market with product enhancements and long haul narrowbody routes from Cordoba using the future 737 MAX fleet.
