During the presentation of the reopening of the Rome – Buenos Aires air lane as of June 3rd in the BIT Milano 2022 fair, the Italian audience showed its expectation and desire of visiting Argentina’s destinations.
Twenty thousand Italian tourists have already visited Argentina since the reopening of the borders in November 2021, and the Rome – Buenos Aires flight, which starts to operate again as of June 3rd, already has high sales volumes.
The expectation of the Italian market to get to know the Argentinian tourist offer was felt everywhere in the BIT Milano 2022 fair, and it was evidenced in the ENIT space, during the presentation of Aerolíneas Argentinas flight that will once again link the Italian and the Argentinian capitals in less than two months.
The Executive Secretary of the National Institute of Tourism Promotion (INPROTUR), Ricardo Sosa, said, “This presentation is the symbol of Argentina’s international tourism reactivation. Our country has been preparing in the best way possible, considering health protocols and, first and foremost, the respect for sanitary practices and social distancing. The fact that Aerolíneas Argentinas connects both countries is highly significant.”
The Argentinian Consul in Milan, Luis Niscovolos, was also present and assured that the flight “is of utmost importance for tourism reactivation, since it shows the historical, cultural, commercial, and economic relevance of our relationship. Greater connectivity will be a fundamental tool for regional economies. It is a great move forward, and we hope that lots of Italians discover the beautiful attractions of Argentina.”
In addition, the Commercial Director of Aerolíneas Argentinas, Fabián Lombardo, expressed, “Apart from the direct connection between Rome and Buenos Aires, this flight allows us to attract travellers from other parts of Italy and Europe with the possibility that, upon arriving to Buenos Aires, they get to some of the other 37 Argentinian destinations where the company flies to.”
The flight will depart from the Italian capital on Monday, Wednesday,and Friday at 7:15 p.m. Thereby, the airline carrying our flag once again takes another big step towards Argentina’s tourism reactivation —as it did with the Madrid — Buenos Aires flight, which started to operate again.
Presence in Rome
Another progress of Argentina’s air connectivity with the rest of the world: the National Institute of Tourism Promotion (INPROTUR) and Aerolíneas Argentinas presented the reoperation of the Rome – Buenos Aires flight at the Embassy of the Argentinian Republic in the Italian capital.
The meeting, to which around 50 Italian tour operators and the local press attended, was led by the Argentinian Ambassador, Roberto Carlés, Fabián Lombardo,and Ricardo Sosa.
With the upcoming direct air connectivity between the Italian capital and the city of Buenos Aires, we are therefore expecting strong sales volumes.
