Norwegian Air Argentina – now with an operators certificate in hand – is readying its first services to be operated by the new Argentinian based unit of the airline
The airline will hub itself at Aeroparque “Jorge Newbery” in Buenos Aires.
In the start-up phase, the airline will operate services from 16th October 2018, serving Córdoba and Mendoza in the first instance. Service will then follow to Iguazu and Neuquén in November, Bariloche in December and Salta in January 2019.

Airline routes has details of the frequencies.
Bjørn Kjos, Chief Executive Officer at Norwegian on the sales launch states:
“This is a great milestone for us in Norwegian. Our goal is to give everyone the opportunity to fly and these routes make it possible for Argentinians as well as Europeans and others to travel in Argentina in Argentina at a reasonable price. The routes will contribute to increased tourism, more jobs and value creation in Argentina, a country where the flight offer has traditionally been limited. Argentina has enormous potential and these routes are just the beginning of our plans in South America.
Now we are looking forward to welcoming both Argentineans to other travelers on board our new, comfortable, more environmentally friendly aircraft”
The airline gained it’s AOC (Airline Operators Certificate) for Norwegian Air Argentina in January 2018.
For those connecting to these flights, Norwegian operates non-stop services between London Gatwick and Buenos Aires Ezeiza International
Norwegian will utilise Boeing 737-800 for this service. And the airline has bold ambitions, with it wanting to fly up to 153 routes in the area.
Certainly enough to give the local airlines more than pause for thought.
