Aerolineas Argentinas has implemented a new circular route, the Federal Corridor, to cover Argentina’s main tourist destinations. Now you can see more of Argentina on your vacation since you don’t have to waste time backtracking to Buenos Aires to catch a connecting flight. The map to the left highlights the new circular route so you can get a better idea of the time savings involved when you don’t have to route every leg of your trip through Buenos Aires. The so-called Federal Corridor connects the following cities with direct air routes: Salta to Iguazu and to Mendoza; and Mendoza to Cordoba and Bariloche.
The Federal Corridor is complemented by the Southern Corridor which connects the following Patagonian cities: El Calafate to Bariloche, Ushuaia, and Trelew; Rio Gallegos to Ushuaia; Trelew to Ushuaia; Comodoro Rivadavia to Neuquen; and Santa Rosa to Viedma. All cities continue to be accessible directly from Buenos Aires which remains the central air traffic hub of Argentina. The map below contains all domestic routes of Aerolineas Argentinas as of 2011.
