The changes implemented by the Government in recent days slightly increased the daily quota of passengers that can enter from abroad. It went from 4,200 (600 per day) to 5,200 during this week and then it will gradually increase until it progressively reaches 1,000 per day between July 24 and August 6. Still, that cap is still half of what was allowed in the weeks before the restrictions.

The body in charge of enabling the flights requested by each company is the National Civil Aviation Administration (ANAC), which this week informed each airline which flights they will have enabled and the details of how many seats they allow to occupy on each flight. The official measure established that this week the weekly income quota will be 5,200 people (742 per day), 6,300 people (900 per day) for the week between July 17 and 23 and 7,000 for the weeks between July July 24 and August 6 (1,000 per day).
The ANAC warned the companies that, despite the situation of stranded passengers abroad, there will be no special repatriation flight scheme for Argentines. “This week only 142 passengers were added per day, which is not even half a plane. With that, the theme of the stranded will not vary too much, which is still worrisome. In addition, the approval of the flights only arrived this Monday, it is for 15 days and on the hour, which makes it very difficult to plan or have predictability in this context, ”explained industry sources.
