The director of Aerolineas Argentinas Ariel Cianotogether with representatives of different sectors of the port activity of Mar del Plata, participated today in a working breakfast to present the conditions and advantages of the “Atlantic Corridor” that the company designed with flights that link Mar del Plata with the Federal Capital and other Buenos Aires and Patagonian destinations.
The meeting was organized and convened by the port of Mar del Plata and allowed attendees to learn more about the characteristics and objectives of this initiative that provides benefits in both passenger and cargo transport.
The presentation was in charge of the director of Aerolineas Argentinas, Ariel Ciano, who detailed stopovers and connections that now join the extremes of the national maritime coastline.
“The objective was to invite them to dialogue and to know in detail the news and the potential that having more and more connectivity from Mar del Plata represents, possible from the federal perspective that the company has,” the official said in a statement.
Aerolineas Argentinas, as reported by Ciano during this meeting, “reaches 37 cabotage destinations and covers 75 routes, including 42 inter-sections -almost twice as many as in 2019-, which are those that are carried out without passing through the city of Buenos Aires, favoring direct links between cities in the interior”.
The so-called “Atlantic Corridor” joins the cities of Buenos Aires, Mar del Plata, Bahía Blanca, Trelew, Comodoro Rivadavia and Río Gallegos, with at least three weekly frequencies since its implementation, in the month of last July.
A good number of directors of companies, businesses, unions and chambers of business related to the local port dynamics responded to this call. She was also accompanied by Councilwoman Virginia Sívori.
For his part, the president of the Mar del Plata Regional Port Consortium, Gabriel Felizia, was in charge of presenting this meeting and highlighting the advantages of having more flights that make a stopover in Mar del Plata. “Having this service and with more and more direct contacts expands possibilities and represents one more opportunity for the development of regional economies,” he concluded.
