Aerolineas Argentinas seeks agreement with union to define fleet plan

    Aerolineas Argentinas summoned (13-Aug-2018) “all its unions to discuss conditions which will allow to increase investments”. Aerolineas Argentinas president Luis Malvido met with six unions seeking a negotiation without pre conditions. The carrier wants to decide on the acquisition of at least two aircraft for 2019 in the next 60 days as it “is not in conditions to cover all its international routes”. Austral‘s fleet renovation will also be defined in the next 90 days, “as it needs more modern and larger aircraft to compete with new carriers arriving in the market”.
