AEROLINEAS ARGENTINAS, for the first time since the Falklands war, now has a daily service between Gatwick and Buenos Aires, albeit with a change of gauge (ie different aircraft) at Madrid.
The long, 12-hour 30-minute, South Atlantic sector is flown by a Boeing 747-400 in a two-class layout, the leg from Madrid to London by sister company Air Plus Comet, hardly known in the UK but established in Spain since December 1996.
The Argentine national airline came out of administration in 2002 and now serves 34 domestic and 30 international destinations in Europe, the Americas and the Pacific.
The company is 92% owned by the Madrid-based Marsons Group, total proprietor of Air Plus Comet, with the State (5%) and the staff (3%) holding the balance.
