Argentina set to restart air routes in October
Buenos Aires ban for Covid is one of the most rigid in the world
Now everything seems ready for Argentina to reopen international air routes. Just today, on Tuesday September 8, 2020, a source close to the local ministry of transport indicated next October as the right time for take-offs and landings in Buenos Aires and its surroundings which have been stopped for several months due to the coronavirus. In this way, airlines would have 30 days to prepare for resumption of operations, an indiscretion that follows the new flight protocols.
Mario Meoni, ministry of the transport department explained which procedures passengers must follow both at the airport and on board the aircraft. The regulation was prepared together with the ministry of health, even if there is the awareness that the reprogramming of the connections will not be easy at all. Argentina ban is total and remained in force since last March, with further restrictions and blocks in the following months. According to Iata (International Air Transport Association), the continuous postponement of the reopening date can make Argentina like Venezuela, which has gone from being one of the main South American aviation markets to limited connectivity.
