Spanair In Buenos Aires

Tue Mar 28, 2000 12:15 am

I was checking the arrivals/departures information for EZE and I noticed two flights I wasn't familiar with:

A Spanair flight from Madrid;
An Air Plus Comet from San Juan, Puerto Rico.

What are these airlines, and what equipment do they use to/from this city?

Both are Spanish carriers (I could be wrong about Air Plus). As far as I know Spanair doesn't have anything larger than a 767-300ER so, if correct, I'm sure that's what they would use. Air Plus...I've seen pictures of an A310-300. That is all I know...hope it helps some.

Hello again, Tailscraper, it's been a while.

I have heard that Spanair will increase it's flights to EZE starting around now (I mean, I read this info back in January & they said they would increase flights in March or April, I think)...

My internet was not shut down, the internet has shut me down

Hi to all, nice to speak to you again.

Spanair: is a spanish airline owned 49% by SAS. They fly three times a week to Buenos Aires with B767-300 (one nonstop, another stopping in Rio and the third in Sao Paulo). The airline is soon to drop the Brazil routes for a while until 2001 (due to capacity restrictions), but will keep flying to Buenos Aires, maybe all nonstop.

Air Plus Argentina S.A.: This is an argentine subsidiary of spanish airline Air Plus Comet (owned by tour operator group Marsans). They set up this company to expand in Argentina in 1998. They been flying since then 2 A310-300´s year round to Canary Islands (Tenerife), Spain (Madrid, Malaga), Cuba (Varadero) and San Juan de Puerto Rico.
