Aerolineas Argentinas has used the last seven days to launch three routes from its Buenos Aires Aeroparque (AEP) and Ezeiza (EZE) hubs. From the former of the two airports, the carrier commenced five times weekly, 737-700-operated services to Belo Horizonte (CNF) in Brazil on 2 March. This 2,182-kilometre city pair will face no direct competition. From the latter of the two Argentinian capital city airports, the SkyTeam carrier began daily 737-800 flights to Guayaquil (GYE) in Ecuador on 1 March, with a stop-over in the capital city Quito (UIO) en-route. While Ecuadorian national carrier tame will provide the competition on the Quito sector with its daily flights, LAN Airlines is the incumbent between Ezeiza and Guayaquil with a twice-weekly operation.
