One example of this is the number of passengers they carried between Buenos Aires and Istanbul in 2017 (1.9 million) in comparison to the number of passengers is expected to carry in 2018 (over 2 million), which is a direct result of Argentinian football fans flying into Russia to support Lionel Messi and co.
