Hola South America

Air New Zealand has announced it will soon be flying direct to Buenos Aires. The airline has been actively investigating a South American option for about six months but it is understood recent falls in jet fuel prices have made launching the route a more attractive prospect. An Air New Zealand Boeing 777-200 aircraft will operate three return services a week on the route all year round. Flights are set to begin from December 2015. Air New Zealand chief executive Christopher Luxon said "Buenos Aires is the most popular tourist city in South America and is a perfect stepping stone for those who then want to explore the country, or continent, further." Air New Zealand will enter into a code share agreement with Aerolíneas Argentinas, subject to obtaining regulatory approvals, which will see Aerolíneas Argentinas' code return to the South Pacific market on the new route and on key connecting Trans-Tasman services, and Air New Zealand will code share on Aerolíneas Argentinas' services to Brazil.
