AC's flight 092/093 have enjoyed load factors in the mid 90's since it's introduction. There is also local carriage rights between SCL
, at competitive fares with LA
. Cargo carriage has been virtually 100% every operation.
As pointed out, Canada-Chile trade ties are stronger given the free trade agreement, but as economic stability rebounds in Argentina, the demand has AC
marketing looking at the entire operation. Of all regions in the world, Carribean/South America has seen the biggest gains, and there is repeated talk of increased frequency and/or splitting the flight into two separate operations. Also rumours of LIM
in the future.
Wonder if S.A. carriers are thinking of revisiting Canada. Many have come and all have gone over the years....
