LATAM Argentina, formerly LAN Argentina, is an airline based in Buenos Aires, Argentina and an affiliate of LATAM Chile, the former LAN Airlines.

History[edit]

Prior to its acquisition by LAN Airlines of Chile, the airline was known by its legal name, Aero 2000. LAN Argentina became an affiliate member of the Oneworld airline alliance on April 1, 2007. The airline is owned by LAN Airlines (49%) and Argentine investors (51%).[1]

On August 28, 2013, an Argentinean judge blocked the government's plan to break a long term lease of hangar space to LAN in Aeroparque Jorge Newbery, that was seen as vital to the airline's operations.[2]

As its parent company LAN Chile merged with TAM Airlines and rebranded to form LATAM, LAN Argentina also rebranded to the current LATAM Argentina.

Destinations[edit]

LATAM Argentina operates scheduled domestic services from Buenos Aires to Bariloche, Córdoba, Comodoro Rivadavia, El Calafate, Mendoza, Puerto Iguazú, Neuquén, Río Gallegos, Salta, San Juan, Tucumán and Ushuaia, and international services to Lima, Miami, Punta Cana, Santiago and Sao Paulo. Its main bases are Jorge Newbery Airport (Airbus A320) and Ministro Pistarini International Airport (Boeing 767), both located in Buenos Aires.[1]
