Higher fares for domestic flights effective tomorrow
The Transport Office has authorized a new fare scheme for domestic flights that will become enforced tomorrow, setting reference prices and a two-type maximum tariff companies will use for services en route from Buenos Aires and Córdoba to different cities in the country.
The decision was published today under the 834/2014 resolution in the official gazette, saying the rise in tariffs follows the need to “guarantee the provision of the aerial transport public service that authorized companies provide.”
A reference tariff for a Buenos Aires-Bahía Blanca flight will now cost 623 persos (it was 558 pesos) with a maximum fare (I) of 1,307 pesos and a maximum fare (II) of 1,663 pesos.
Flying from Buenos Aires to the southern city of Bariloche will now cost 1,208 pesos (it was 1,079 pesos) with a maximum fare (I) of 2,537 pesos and a maximum fare (II) of 3,232 pesos.
