Last Friday, July 21, several representatives of the government of the province of Misiones and the top management of the low cost airline met to negotiate the expansion of the company’s operations.
Currently, the company operates three daily flights to Iguazú Falls and one to the city of Posadas.
At the meeting, attended by the governor of the province Oscar Herrera Ahuad, the Minister of Tourism José María Arrúa and the mayor of Posadas Leonardo “Lalo” Stelatto, together with the airline’s CEO Mauricio Sana and the Director of Communications and Sustainability Lucía Ginzo, an agreement was reached on the installation of an aircraft and its hangar in the city of Puerto Iguazú, in addition to adding another flight to Posadas.
These negotiations take place within the framework of the great growth that the province of Misiones is experiencing as a tourist destination both nationally and internationally.
In addition, the city of Posadas will lose its connection with the city of Buenos Aires in the coming months due to the temporary suspension of JetSmart’s route, so the incorporation of an additional flight would help to sustain arrivals to the capital of Misiones.
The incorporation of an aircraft and its respective depot, in addition to representing an improvement in terms of logistics and new jobs, means the possibility of a new air route between the province and Brazil.
