Norwegian to double routes in Argentina

Norwegian Air Argentina has recently announced the addition of new routes and the prospect of coming profitability.

Norwegian Air Argentina reported today that in a few days it will start sales of tickets for new cabotage destinations in Argentina, which will allow it to double the number of routes operated in the country.

It currently operates six routes, including Córdoba, Mendoza, Iguazú, Salta, Neuquén and Bariloche.

“Very soon we will offer more options at low rates so that more Argentines can travel and explore this fantastic and beautiful country,” said Ole Christian Melhus, CEO of Norwegian Air Argentina.

“This is very good news, along with the increasingly better results we have had in sales recently, the solid sales for the coming weeks and the increase in occupancy levels of our flights, which increased in April, we are in line to be profitable in a very short time.”

The chief executive specified that he expects the company to be profitable in August.

The new routes will begin operation during the month of September, after the return one of the company’s aircraft which was temporarily transferred back to Europe in April.

In addition, the company expects to continue to add more aircraft in the fourth quarter of the year, both for cabotage and regional operations.

As for the new routes, Melhus said, “Although right now we can not reveal all the new destinations, I can say one of them will be the city of Ushuaia, so Norwegian will achieve a global milestone as the first airline in the world to operate at the same time, with scheduled weekly flights, in the southernmost commercial airport in the world and in the northernmost airport in the world–Svalbard, in northern Norway”.

Call centre
Norwegian Air Argentina recently opened a call centre in Buenos Aires, from where it provides support in Spanish, English and Portuguese.

In this way, a team of representatives from Argentina complements the customer service that the airline offers from different parts of the world.

The company said its goal was to develop this team in the country, contributing to the creation of employment in the country.
