JetSMART: 'Domestic airport charge is very competitive, but international is too expensive'

26 February, 2019

JetSMART CEO Estuardo Ortiz commented on Argentina's airport charges, stating: "Domestic airport charge is very competitive compared to other countries, but the international charge is too expensive" (El Tribuno, 22-Feb-2019). He stated that a passenger can pay USD70 "just to leave Argentina plus USD25 to USD40 to arriving at another country… when a ticket is sold today for USD50. It's not proportional".
