Norwegian Air Argentina unveils first aircraft
Norwegian Air Argentina’s (NAA) first aircraft has been presented at Buenos Aires’ Ezeiza International Airport. The ceremony was attended by King Harald V and Queen Sonia of Norway as well eas the CEO of Norweigen, Bjørn Kjos and Norway's commerce and industry minister Torbjørn Røe. Kjos says Argentina is "a perfect fit with our expansion strategy", welcoming Argentina president Mauricio Macri's move to open up the aviation industry to foreign investment. The new fleet will consist of mainly 737-800s with 189 seats and on-board wifi. Sales for these flights will begin in May and Norwegian Air Argentina have already scouted out Cordoba as playing a central role in the network. In terms of a central hub, Norwegian has opted to base its Buenos Aires operations at Ezeiza rather than the downtown Aeroparque airport.

Norwegian Air Argentina receives first aircraft
On Monday, Norwegian Air Argentina’s (NAA) first aircraft arrived at Buenos Aires’ Ezeiza International Airport. The plane, a 10-month-old Boeing 737-800, was received by the traditional water salute and tango music. The aircraft is the first of 10-12 that Norwegian Air Argentina expects to receive this year.The Buenos Aires hub, it is rumoured, will be located at the new Palomar airport, which is currently undergoing rejuvination from a military air-base to a civilian terminal.
The delivery flight began in Oslo, Norway, the airline’s home country and namesake, and was completed after stops in Goose Bay, Canada, and Martinica, French Antilles. As the Argentinian Aircraft Operators Certificate (AOC) process is yet to be completed, both the aircraft and crew operating the aircraft were operating as Norwegian Air Shuttle (NAX) and obtained permission to land as EI-FVO, its former Irish registration.
The sound of tango at the aircraft’s arrival was not by chance but, rather, a homage to the person that has been painted on the tail of this particular aircraft. Following Norwegian’s tradition of honoring the personalities of its subsidiaries’ localities, the aircraft, with its new Argentinian registration LV-HQH, is named after Astor Piazzolla, a well-known tango composer, arranger and bandoneonist.

Norwegian Air Argentina Receives Approval To Start Operations
The airline has gotten clearance from Argentina’s Department of Transportation to operate a total of 152 routes, both international and domestic. The newly formed subsidiary of Norwegian Air, Norwegian Air Argentina, has been granted authority to operate its flights in Argentina. The final approval was granted by the Ministry of Transportation on December 11 and goes into effect immediately. Of the 155 routes requested by the carrier, 152 were approved.
Norwegian Air Argentina (NAA) will invest over $4.3 billion into their new venture in Argentina over 12 years. The company plans to create four major hubs in the country to allow for more efficient travel. Hubs will be created in Buenos Aires, Cordoba, Salta and Mendoza. The new hubs will create 3,200 direct jobs and over 50,000 indirect jobs in the areas surrounding the hubs.
NAA will offer both domestic and international flights. The domestic flights will be in direct competition with the national carrier, Aerolineas Argentinas, who currently has 74 percent of the market share. NAA believes that their low fares, however, will encourage more people to use their airline.
NAA will also offer many international flights. While some of their destinations were anticipated, such as Miami, Barcelona and Madrid, the airline has also decided to offer several unexpected destinations. Some of the new routes include Honolulu, Ft. Lauderdale, Oslo, Moscow and Tel Aviv. NAA has also been granted authority to fly to Dallas/ Ft. Worth, Chicago, Washington D.C., San Francisco and Los Angeles. These will place NAA in direct competition with major carriers United Airlines, American Airlines and Delta Air Lines.
NAA will operate up to 70 aircraft to begin their venture in Argentina. This will include Boeing 787 Dreamliners and Boeing 737-800's. The first planes are set to arrive in Argentina in January to begin the certification process. Flights should begin by June 2018.

Norwegian Air Argentina 'must overcome infrastructure hurdles' to become regional powerhouse
Norwegian Air Argentina is planning direct flights from Buenos Aires to Los Angeles, New York and Istanbul as part of a $4.3 billion expansion in the South American country over the next 10 years. The discount airline is also eyeing service to such cities as Dallas, Honolulu and Johannesburg, said Ole Christian Melhus, head of Norwegian’s operations in Argentina. U.S. flights are scheduled to begin by the end of 2018, after the carrier begins serving domestic and South American destinations. Norwegian is vying for a chunk of the incipient market for low-cost flights in Argentina, where state-run Aerolineas Argentinas has held a virtual monopoly on air travel for the past 15 years. Norwegian has been accumulating planes and expanding destinations at a torrid pace worldwide, from smaller U.S. cities to Southeast Asia.
Norwegian Air Argentina 'must overcome infrastructure hurdles' to become regional powerhouse
Argentina’s more liberalised approach is fuelling capacity growth and attracting new entrants to the market. However, IATA has stressed that the country’s government must address infrastructure concerns in order to fulfil its potential and become a regional aviation powerhouse. A study published this week has revealed that aviation and aviation-induced tourism contribute $9.6bn to Argentina's economy and support 300,000 jobs, equivalent to 1.7 percent of the country's GDP.
The findings, contained in ‘The Importance of Air Transport in Argentina’ report conducted by Oxford Economics on behalf of IATA, added that foreign tourists arriving by air, who spend their money in the local economy, are estimated to have supported an additional 130,000 jobs. As the data is largely based on 2014 figures, it is likely that the value of the aviation sector to Argentina’s economy will have increased further. Since president Mauricio Macri took office in late 2015, the government has taken a much more supportive stance towards the industry, recognising the importance of air services towards economic development.
In February 2016 it removed the maximum limit on fares for domestic flights, while in March this year Macri moved ahead with plans to open up the country’s aviation network to greater competition, particularly for low-cost carriers, by approving 135 new airline routes. According to OAG, the country’s domestic capacity is on track to increase by 12.2 percent in 2017 to 16.5 million departure seats, compared with 2016, while international capacity is up by 11.1 percent to 8.9 million.
