Gov’t approves 12 percent hike on domestic flights
Domestic flights leaving Buenos Aires or Córdoba will cost an average 12 percent more starting today, according to a resolution published yesterday published yesterday in the Official Gazette signed by Transport Secretary Alejandro Ramos. According to the government, this new increase — the second of this year — will “guaranteee the service’s provision.”
The increase affects every commercial airline providing domestic flights and will establish a readjustment in their economy-class fares. A chart included in the resolution serves as a guideline for airlines, providing the minimum and maximum costs they can charge for their routes. The prices include a “second maximum fee,” which is applicable to tickets purchased 10 days before a flight. This latest hike comes after the 12 percent increase implemented in April.
