- Aerolineas Argentinas expanded its network from Cordoba (COR) this week, connecting Argentina’s second largest city to Trelew (REL) in the Chubut Province of Argentina. Last week the airline had begun services to Santiago in Chile on 10 September with a three times weekly frequency. The connection to Trelew launched on 16 September with four weekly rotations. While the 1,324-kilometre sector to Trelew, which operates on 737-700s, will face no direct competition, the 660-kilometre link to the Chilean capital, flown by E190s, will go head-to-head with LATAM Airlines (13 weekly flights) and Sky Airline (daily). With these two launches during the past fortnight, Aerolineas Argentinas now offers 17 destinations from Cordoba on 158 weekly flights when analysing OAG schedules.
