The company continues with its growth and investment plan launching at the end of 2021
Flybondi, the first low-cost airline in Argentina, received its seventh aircraft, a Boeing 737-800 NG with registration LV-KDQ that will begin operating in the short term after carrying out the corresponding administrative processes.
