“This agreement reflects the positive joint efforts and collaboration between ALTA, IATA and the Argentine government, and will improve opportunities for airlines and passengers to have a better travel experience and will generate even further positive economic and social benefits for Argentineans and visitors.”

“The Argentine air transportation is growing as never before, with records in number of passengers that are overcome month by month and thanks to more and more alternatives of connectivity, especially in the provinces throughout the country. Definitely the future of aviation in Argentina is enormously promising. We have great challenges and to deploy all the potential we must continue working together: the government, the industry, IATA and ALTA. The contribution made by this agreement is essential to continue connecting the country within the provinces and with the world,” added Dietrich.

“IATA is proud to be strengthening our working agreements with the Argentine government and ALTA. The MoU will open the door for further development of air transport in Argentina. Already aviation contributes $9.6 billion to GDP and 300,000 jobs in the country and we are certain that this agreement will only increase our industry’s contributions to the country,” said Cerda.
