Argentina Bans Flight Sales until 1 September, Breaches Bilateral Agreements

Argentina has banned all internal and international commercial flights until September 1st as the country battles the coronavirus pandemic. A decree from National Civil Aviation Administration asked airlines to refrain from selling tickets for departures over the next four months.

Argentina currently has nearly 4,000 confirmed infections, with 192 deaths, according to figures from Johns Hopkins University in the United States. Earlier Argentina closed its bordrs on March 15, and started imposing quarantines from March 20 and extended the measures till May 10.

A joint statement by the International Air Transport Association, Latin American airlines group ALTA, and regional airport council ACI-LAC condemned the measure as posing an “imminent and substantial risk” to the survival of airlines and airports, endangering thousands of jobs, and severing the “connectivity of Argentina to the world.”

“The problem was that airlines were selling tickets without having authorization to travel to Argentine soil,” a spokesman for President Alberto Fernández said.

The international aviation agency, IATA, sent a letter to the Argentine government, saying the decision breached bilateral agreements and put at risk more than 300,000 jobs in the country. Source: BBC
