Our country and Argentina On The Go are preparing for the future, working on the planning and development of new tools, new circuits and the building of a new confidence that will be essential if we are to receive travelers from all over the world once again.
Tourism in Argentina today
These days the number of new infections is on the rise, though in a centralized way, with the highest number of cases taking place in the city of Buenos Aires and its outskirts (90% out of the national rate of infection). For more detailed and specific information about the evolution of the COVID-19 cases in Argentina we suggest you visit the following link: Argentina & the pandemic nowadays
Some of the events most relevant for our activity in the last 2 weeks have been:
1_ As of August Aerolineas Argentinas resumed their operations internationally with two weekly flights to the cities of Miami and Madrid. These are already published on the company’s website.
2_ Alitalia and Delta Airlines have confirmed that their operations with the Buenos Aires airport (EZE) will be resumed as of September.
3_ According to official sources, though without full certainty, it has emerged that the resumption of operations for domestic flights (originally scheduled for September) might be postponed for October due to the increased numbers of cases reported in the last 2 weeks. This decision is likely to be announced in the next few days by the Ministry of Transport.
4_ In order to instill the confidence required to receive tourists again, the Ministry of Tourism (Mintur) and the Tourist Promotion Agency (INPROTUR) have created, and made available, the necessary protocols for the development of our industry in this new “normality”. Such documents may be downloaded in both Spanish and English languages via the following link: Tourism & hospitality protocols
5_ Today, a considerable number of provinces, as well as most of the National Parks such as Iguazu, Los Glaciares, Lanin, Nahuel Huapi, Talampaya, etc, have been authorized to carry out domestic tourism. Some of the most important ski resorts, such as Cerro Catedral (Bariloche), Cerro Castor (Ushuaia), Chapelco (San Martin de los Andes) and Cerro Bayo (San Martin de los Andes) are also currently operational for residents.
Up to the present day, the date for the reopening of our borders is still uncertain. Thus the receptive activity will remain suspended until further notice by the official authorities.
Argentina On The Go these days
In Argentina On The Go we are currently holding a series of product training workshops with a view to creating the offer that the future and the new tourism will require. With that aim in mind, we have entered into new partnerships with service suppliers that, just like us, prioritize the quality and innovation of their products and with whom we are working jointly on sustainability in order to pave the way for responsible tourism throughout our entire commercial chain.
Among the actions taken as leaders in the organization of responsible travels (as DMC in Argentina), it is worth mentioning that this week we have started our cooperation with the Reforestarg Foundation. Our joint goal will be to make the necessary contribution for the compensation of the carbon footprint emissions during the trips organized for our passengers.
We continue working and remain at your disposal for further information.
