Argentina Get A Low Cost Airline

#22
I dont want thse low cost airlines running in Aeroparque or Ezeiza. These two are the best airports in whole of South America, as of now.
Two best airports in LATAM? Thats quite a claim....

Low cost airlines tend to be more efficient than legacy airlines, as you can see by theri turn around times. In Europe at least their fleets tend to me more modern and contaminate less.

Almost certainly we will see the Argie unions say that low cost airlines are unsafe . That is not the case in Europe or in North America.

Its still too early to say how the whole thing will develop.

If it brings prices down and increases available flights for travelers , it has to be welcomed.
