Argentine travel to the

United States

continues to be

incessant

despite the restrictions imposed by the Government.

Only in the remainder of this month about

10,000 people

will leave Ezeiza

for that country

, most of them going directly to the city of Miami, where vaccination is enabled for tourists arriving from abroad.

The flights are mainly from Aerolineas Argentinas, which leaves six times a week, but every day there is also at least one flight from an American airline (American Airlines, United, Delta), not counting the offer of regional flights with connection to the USA. USA

Not counting flights that are pending approval by the

National Civil Aviation Administration

(ANAC), there are already some

30 passenger flights to the US scheduled

, in planes that carry between 270 and 320 passengers.

25 of those flights are direct to

Miami

(17 from Airlines and eight from American) and others are to

Dallas, Houston and Atlanta. 

For next month, despite the fact that airlines now have greater restrictions on programming (the ANAC went from granting monthly permits to doing it from one week to the next), only from Aerolíneas there are already 7,000 seats available to travel to Miami.

And foreign airlines also have flights for sale for the first days of that month.

It is a type of tourism that is talked about in WhatsApp chats and on social networks, but that few operators in the sector want to mention out

loud.

"American Airlines flights are full. I'm looking these days

for people who are going to be vaccinated and I can't find a place,

" a retail operator, a former employee of the US airline, told Clarín.

In Airlines they also have that the Airbus A330, with 270 seats,

leave full for Miami

.

"It looks like a bus on a Friday at six in the afternoon. And these are flights that

are prohibited for company employees

: the free seats, which we call

sublo indoors

, are now only available for

domestic flights,

" said one source aware of what is happening at the state airline.

Only this Sunday, from Ezeiza, two flights will depart to Miami, one from Airlines and the other from American, but there will also be three flights to Houston (United), Atlanta (Delta) and Dallas (American).

There will also be regional flights that offer connections with the US from LATAM (Santiago de Chile) and Copa (Panama).

Airlines has the most scheduled flights, with

six weekly connections to Miami

(every day, except Tuesdays), followed by American (eight flights to Miami in the remainder of April, in addition to a confirmed flight to Dallas and others that would be pending).

Not a minor fact is that return flights from abroad can only transport

tourists or Argentine residents

, since the entry of tourists from abroad is closed by order of the Government until April 30, within the framework of the restrictions by the second wave of the Coronavirus.

Only those foreigners who have processed

special permits

before boarding

can do so

.

Flights to the United States are not prohibited, but they still

fall within the restriction

applied by the National Civil Aviation Administration (ANAC) of not allowing the arrival of

more than 2,000 passengers per day

to Ezeiza

.

It was from that limit that Aerolineas lowered its flights to six per week, while American reduced them from 10 to eight, and then to seven per week.

Regular flights from

Brazil, Chile and Mexico

, as well as those from the

United Kingdom and Northern Ireland

are

prohibited

, but the ANAC is authorizing specific flights under the "special" category.

Aerolineas has a flight scheduled for Santiago de Chile in two weeks.

LATAM, meanwhile, only has seats available to the trans-Andean capital on

only six flights

, from now to the end of the month.
