Re: List of routes requested by Norwegian Argentina

IGU should be changed to IGR. IGU is on the Brazilian side.

Wow. That's just an incredible amount of flights/destinations. I'd be surprised if the protectionist Argentine government granted more than 10% of that. Hope I'm wrong.

Right you are. I was looking at their "schedule," which includes their codeshare flights. Seemed weird to not be able to corroborate that at the time.
