Visit Argentina


Routes Americas is the great annual meeting of airline decision makers across America, that is to say, when airlines negotiate with destinations for establishing new routes and more frequencies. In its relentless pursuit of increasing Argentina’s inbound tourism, INPROTUR participated in the event that took place in San Antonio (Texas), from February 15th and 17th and held key meetings with 10 airlines.

Ricardo Sosa, executive secretary of the National Institute of Tourism Promotion (INPROTUR), assured, “One of our main goals is increasing the number of travellers coming to our country to outdo the pre-pandemic levels. International tourism reactivation is crucial for the development of Argentinian economy.”

The meetings between the INPROTUR and the airlines are detailed below:

JetBlue Airways

Discussions were initiated to explore the possibility of operating flights from its hub in Fort Lauderdale to the north of Argentina (Iguazú, Tucumán, and Salta).

Viva Air

Discussions regarding the upcoming announcement about this-year start of operations to Argentina continued.

United Airlines

Negotiations continued to revive flight services between USA’s and Argentina’s capitals (ended in 2016).
