Macri Seeks to Boost Argentina’s Air Links

BUENOS AIRES – President Mauricio Macri said on Tuesday that his administration had taken up the “challenge” of connecting Argentina’s airspace to enhance domestic and international tourism, and boost communications potential.

“This is a very big country and its levels of disconnection are unimaginable,” Macri said.

During the groundbreaking ceremony for the Cordoba airport renovations, the president said neighboring countries had three times more flights per capita than Argentina.

Macri noted the “sad and painful” lack of safety on roads and inadequate infrastructure that has caused “thousands and thousands” of Argentines to lose their lives every year in accidents while “trying to connect.”

Creating “physical” and “virtual” connections around the country is a primary goal of the administration, along with improving transportation infrastructure and expanding satellite communications, the key to wider access to the Internet and boosting domestic tourism, Macri said.

The projects in Cordoba are part of creating an “increasingly modern” and international network of airports, the president said.

Aerolineas Argentinas, in fact, plans to resume flying to the southern city of Rio Cuarto in September after a 19-year absence.

This decision will benefit about 600,000 people, Macri said.

“Argentina has millions of beautiful things and we want the world to know about them. For that to happen, we need infrastructure, so not everything occurs in Buenos Aires,” Macri said.
