Aerolineas Argentinas recently announced a seasonal direct flight from Orlando International Airport to Buenos Aires’ Ministro Pistarini International Airport. The flights will start in December, and will be the only non-stop route connecting Central Florida with the Argentine capital. The route will operate three times a week on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday through March 21, 2020.
“The seasonal direct flight from Orlando to Buenos Aires will make our city just one stop away to Florida travelers and will benefit those in a number of other cities, including Tampa, St. Pete and Sarasota. Buenos Aires is an open and diverse city with vibrant and world-class cultural offerings,” said Gonzalo Robredo, president, Buenos Aires City Tourism Board. “The increasing connectivity represents the Argentine capital’s prosperous tourism industry, which welcomed over 253,000 North American tourists last year.”
The new route comes amid a tourism upswing, with more American tourists visiting Buenos Aires than ever. In 2018, U.S. travelers visited Buenos Aires for business and leisure. While in Argentina, U.S. travelers get a better value for their dollar through current, favorable exchange rates as well as a waived 21 percent VAT tax charged by hotels for foreigners.
Last year, Buenos Aires saw a 9 percent increase in American travelers who booked 4- and 5-star hotels.
