Flybondi, the first low-cost airline in Argentina, has welcomed 2023 with the announcement of good news and the continuation of its investment plan in the country.
Flybondi’s twelfth aircraft, a Boeing 737-800 NG, has arrived in Argentina from Arkansas, U.S.A. Flybondi will begin operating the aircraft after carrying out the pertinent administrative procedures for its certification and registration. As announced a few months ago, Flybondi was searching the leasing market for at least five more aircraft to add to its fleet during 2023. Thanks to the success of this plan, which allowed it to double the number of aircraft in its fleet, Flybondi has more than doubled its market share with respect to 2019. Currently holding a market share of 21% for domestic flights and 5% for international flights, the company has positioned and consolidated itself as the second.-largest airline in the country.
Additionally, its flights have an occupancy rate above 90%. Flybondi has recently announced its third inter-provincial route and from March 2., it will reconnect the provinces of Córdoba and Salta. This route will have three-weekly flights on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
In the first few days of January 2023, the airline has reached six million passengers carried since the commencement of its operations. This number reflects the growth experienced by the company in the past two years in terms of market offer and share. It is worth noting that first-time flyers are still included among Flybondi’s passengers: 20% of the passengers carried by the company are people who are flying for the first time.
