Aerolíneas Argentinas announced the opening of a new international route, with which it will directly link Buenos Aires and Orlando. The inaugural flight will be on December 9 and will have three weekly frequencies.
The direct flight between Buenos Aires and Orlando will have three weekly flights during the Argentine holiday season, between December 9 and March 21. From that date, the frequency with which it will be carried out will be evaluated. It will be operated with Airbus 330 - 200 aircraft, with capacity for 262 passengers (240 in Economy and 22 in Club Cóndor).
The departures from Ezeiza will be on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 11:30 p.m., and will arrive in Orlando at 7:10 p.m. (local time). While the returns from Orlando are scheduled for Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday at 4:25 p.m. (local time), with arrival in Buenos Aires at 4:00 hs. These schedules will favor connections with flights to and from Rosario, Cordoba, Mendoza, Mar del Plata, Bahía Blanca, Tucumán, Salta, Porto Alegre, Asunción, Santiago de Chile and San Pablo.
"The opening of this new international route is a bet of Aerolíneas Argentinas in its constant quest to generate more revenue and optimize its operation," said Luis Malvido, President of the Aerolíneas Group, during the presentation. He added: "We direct all our efforts to the identification of the preferences of the passengers and to satisfy them with a quality product".
This flight is added to the 35 routes that Aerolíneas Argentinas opened during the last three years. Today, the company operates 18 routes more than in 2015. The last international route that it added is the one between Córdoba and Punta Cana, whose inaugural flight took place on August 25 of last year. Of the 12,940,000 passengers transported in 2018, 3,270,000 correspond to international destinations.
The city of Orlando is known worldwide for the large number and variety of attractions it concentrates. There are Magic Kingdom Park, Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, as well as Disney's Blizzard Beach and Disney's Typhoon Lagoon water parks. In addition, it is the headquarters of Universal Orlando Resort and Seaworld. It also houses shopping centers such as Orlando International Premium Outlets, Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores and Orlando Vineland Premium Outlets. This tourist destination is just over 350 kilometers away from Miami, another of the cities most visited by Argentine travelers.
The Orlando airport is just over 20 minutes away by car from the center of the city. It has two terminals for the more than 30 airlines that operate there, and an extensive range of shops and gastronomic services.
