Argentina's Largest Air Service Aerolíneas Argentinas
The biggest airline of Argentina and its flagship carrier, Aerolíneas Argentinas was founded in 1949 and has provided passengers with flights to over 60 destinations for more than 65 years. Originally created from the merger of four companies, in 1950 the airline set up a route from Buenos Aires to Frankfurt, connecting South America to Germany for the first time since 1933. In the early 1950s, the airline took possession of its first jetliners to service the company's 57,000 km in routes.
In 2008, Aerolíneas Argentinas was bought by the Argentinian Government and has been state-owned ever since. With headquarters in Buenos Aires, the airline has a fleet size of 56, including Boeing 737-700 and 800s to service domestic routes. International routes are serviced by Airbus A330s and A340s and fly to destinations in South and North America, Europe, Africa and New Zealand.
The company employs more than 11,000 people and in 2012 joined the SkyTeam alliance of airlines to further expand its connections and give South America easier access to Europe, the Caribbean and Africa.
