How easy is it to get from downtonw Bs.As. to El Palomar? I have never been to Bs.As. but based on a quick look on Google Maps it seems EPA is not too far from the city.

It was reported yesterday or so by Mexico's Expansión. Apparently three weekly service (which is what the slots they were able to obtain would allow) would result in an unprofitable operation for EK, so they decided to not launch DXB-BCN-MEX. I wonder if AM will relaunch this flight or not. It will...Jump to post
According to sources in Mexico, the lack of suitable daily slots at MEX have made EK abandon plans to operate a daily DXB-BCN-MEX rotation. Shame; not good news for some competition @ MEX.

Chile's SKY has received approval from Argentina's ANAC to switch its operations in Buenos Aires from EZE to El Palomar EPA, the low cost airfield for Buenos Aires. Fees at EPA are on average US$30 lower than at EZE. The airline has not informed yet of the switch date, but it won't be before Novembe...Jump to post
This is consistent with previous announcements (from last year) that the airline intends to fly to both Argentina and Brazil in the next couple of years:

Interesting that AF will remove the A380 from a high OD route (SFO) and put it on a hub to hub route with mainly connecting passengers (ATL). I doubt it is the OD traffic on CDG-ATL that drives this change. While SFO may have more OD - you have to remember AF competes with UA @ SFO & DY OAK-CDG...Jump to post

Thanks. I knew SCL had been announced too... As well as TPA & VVI. Was not aware of SAP. I am sure EZE & GRU won't be too far behind. I find interesting that in Argentina COR was chosen over EZE, but not surprised given COR's traffic growth over the past 24 months.Jump to post

Any chance they'll add more intentional routes from EZE? EZE-CUN next year with 2-3 weekly frequencies.

TPA indeed comes as a surprise to me too but I read in an article that SFO was chosen because of UA being their Star Alliance partner who also has the MAX9 in case they need their support and training CM too.

Well, to your point: savvy travellers from Argentina take an inexpensive (€25) Flybondi or Andes flight to IGR, take a taxi over the border to IGU and then take a flight to GRU-Europe for 1/3 less of what costs from EZE or COR.
