Argentina's Flybondi applies for the Buenos Aires - Lima route

Thu Jul 09, 2020 11:57 pm

With Avianca Peru and LATAM Argentina gone, Flybondi is making use of its dormant authority to fly between Argentina's and Peru's capitals. The airline has applied for 7 weekly frequencies from Buenos Aires EPA (El Palomar airport). Pre-pandemic these were the daily flights between EZE and LIM;

* Aerolineas Argentinas 1x d
* Avianca Peru 1x d
* LATAM Argentina 1x d
* LATAM Brazil 1x d
* LATAM Peru 2x d
* LATAM Ecuador 1x d

Flybondi already flies to ASU, PDP, POA, GRU & GIG from EPA.

The void left by LATAM Argentina's demise is quickly being filled up. JetSMART has applied with the government of Peru to operate between Buenos Aires AEP and Lima LIM; the airline already holds Argentinian authority on the route. JetSMART, through its purchase of Norwegian Argentina, holds slots at Buenos Aires Jorge Newbery AEP, the busiest airport in the city - and most convenient.

I see T0/AV's exit as a stronger reason for the excitement. Less competition makes the route more viable. LATAM's planning on moving capacity from the Argentinian sector to their other bases right? I read this as "4M's international capacity will be (mostly) taken over by other units." I think it's more than likely LP just throws an extra A320 on the route.
However, I think the route will do well from both carriers and do nothing but put extra pressure on AR.

Good to see efforts to plug the LATAM hole by some of the private carriers. Hopefully they can gain enough market share to hold on and not fold in the next couple of years. The economy is going to be very, very rough even post-pandemic. AR, as we all know, can and will survive absolutely anything due to subsidies which creates a real risk for the consumer that AR will be left as the only proper scheduled airline left standing if JetSmart and FlyBondi can't secure their financial and market positions.

LATAM can move capacity to the other regional subsidiaries only if the bilaterals allow for it. It is not a given that LATAM Peru can take over the frequencies left vacant by LATAM Argentina. With the Argentinian side only using one frequency daily, and LATAM Peru using 5-6/day, if one includes services to COR/ROS/MDZ/TUC/SLA from LIM, both JetSMART and Flybondi have a strong case for their proposed services.

LIM is fifth busiest route from Buenos Aires, after GRU, SCL, MAD and MIA.
