Norwegian Air Argentina is set to commence domestic operations in October 2019.
The low-cost carrier was founded by the parent company Norwegian Air Shuttle after the Argentinian government scrapped a regulation on minimum domestic fares and allowing low-cost carriers to operate in the country.
Other low-cost airlines such as Flybondi have also used this opportunity and began flying domestic earlier this year.
Norwegian Air Argentina will operate with the IATA-Code ‘DN’. Services in Argentina start with flights to Cordoba and Mendoza. Furthermore, new routes to Iguazu and Neuquen are set to follow on November 19. Additionally, Norwegian Air Argentina’s flights to Bariloche and Salta will launch in December.
Besides the routes from Norwegian’s South American subsidiary, Norwegian Air UK began flying between Buenos Aires and London-Gatwick in February. The connection is operated by a Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
The Argentinian carrier will initially operate with one aircraft in its fleet; a Boeing 737-800 has been re-registered, which was previously owned by Norwegian Air International.
By the end of the first year of operations, the airline aims to have 10-15 aircraft in service.
