In a move that’s set to further strengthen Argentina’s ties with the United States, American Airlines is set to inaugurate two new routes between the US and Argentina that will begin to take off from the end of this year.

One route, to be launched on December 19 of this year, will connect Buenos Aires and Los Angeles. All flights will be on the Boeing Dreamliner 787-9, one of the most modern and comfortable aircrafts to date. Featuring the modern perk of satellite wifi (finally), if you are however willing to splash the cash a little more, Premium Economy class sounds extra comfortable with wider leather seats, head and foot rests, and a special menu so you can feel extra VIP (but like, not).

Andres Duncan Paterson, American Airlines’ sales manager for Argentina and Uruguay, added that the new EZE-LAX service will offer passengers new and convenient ways of connecting with Asia, of which he had seen an increase in demand due to both business and tourism.

 

The second flight to launch will link Córdoba’s international airport (Aeronáutico Ambrosio Taravella) with Miami’s international airport at Fort Lauderdale. The first flight between Córdoba and the US will hit the skies on April 2, 2019.

The new route, which will operate four times a week, will be serviced by a Boeing 767-300 and offer 181 seats in economy class with 28 seats in business class.

The new route marks the first time the city Córdoba will be connected via a direct flight to the United States. The frequency isn’t bad either, with two daily flights. Argentine Minister of Tourism Gustavo Santos said that this addition was very much anticipated and how pleased he was that major airlines such as American Airlines are approaching Argentina, adding that they will always be welcomed with open arms.

Currently, American Airlines offers two daily flights between Buenos Aires to Miami, one daily flight to New York, and one direct flight to Dallas. With the new scheduled flights in place, American Airlines will be offering a total of 35 weekly flights between Argentina and the US.
