Aerolineas Argentinas Reviews

Aerolíneas Argentinas (English: Argentine Airlines), formally Aerolíneas Argentinas S.A., is Argentina’s largest airline. The airline was created in 1949 from the merger of four companies, and started operations in December 1950. A consortium led by Iberia took control of the airline in 1990, and Grupo Marsans acquired the company and its subsidiaries in 2001, following a period of severe financial difficulties that put the airline on the brink of closure. The company has been run by the Argentine government since late 2008, when the country regained control of the airline after it was took over from the Spanish owners. As of October 2013, Aerolíneas Argentinas is state-owned and serves as the country’s flag carrier. It has its headquarters in Buenos Aires.

Aerolíneas has a fleet of Boeing 737-700s and -800s for serving domestic and regional routes, whereas intercontinental services are flown with Airbus A330s and -340s. SkyTeam membership was activated in late August 2012; the airline’s cargo division became a member of SkyTeam Cargo in November 2013.

Aerolíneas Argentinas and its sister company Austral Líneas Aéreas operates from two hubs, both located in Buenos Aires: Aeroparque Jorge Newbery and Ministro Pistarini International Airport.
