Six domestic routes in Argentina have been confirmed by Norwegian to start before Christmas.

The budget carrier is to serve Córdoba, Mendoza, Iguazú, Bariloche, Neuquén and Salta from the international gateway Buenos Aires with fares starting at less than £50 one-way.

The routes link with the airline’s service from Gatwick to Buenos Aires Ezeiza International airport.

The internal flights will use the city’s domestic airport which is a short taxi or bus transfer away.

The airline’s domestic routes in Argentina will be operated by a fleet of Boeing 737-800s.

Services to Cordoba and Mendoza are due t start on October 16, followed by Iguazu and Neuquen on November 19 and Bariloche and Salta from December 3.

Domestic flights to the six cities across Argentina are available to book. But as there is a change of airport required tickets must be purchased separately from the Gatwick to Buenos Aires flight.

Norwegian CEO Bjorn Kjos said: “The imminent start of our operations in Argentina confirms our long-term commitment to the region and represents a milestone in Norwegian’s history.

“Our new flights will help to improve connectivity, will boost local tourism and increase investment across the country generating a positive impact to local communities.

“Customers arriving on our long haul service to Buenos Aires can now additionally travel across Argentina with confidence and ease thanks to our new domestic routes.”
