The first special flight arrived from Miami with stranded Argentines

The aircraft landed with 270 passengers, some of whom reported presenting symptoms that could be compatible with the virus infection.

The first special flight of Aerolineas Argentinas that brought back Argentines who were stranded in Miami, arrived this Thursday in Buenos Aires with 270 passengers on board, while the second special service, organized as part of the measures to tackle the coronavirus, has already left for the same destination.

The aircraft landed at 5.51 with 270 passengers, some of whom reported having some symptoms that could be compatible with the virus infection, so they were evaluated when they got off the plane, but without positive results in the first instance, although all those who traveled must keep a mandatory quarantine.

As is already the case in these cases, they filled out a form with an affidavit, which contains the address where they will carry out the isolation.

Pabló Biró, general secretary of the Association of Airline Pilots (APLA), who was the commander of the plane, explained this morning in radio statements that “the flight was long, since we left empty yesterday morning, with a reinforced crew , we were an hour and a half in Miami and we turned around. “

He said he was “tired”, but very satisfied, like the rest of the crew, because “President Alberto Fernández asked us, as a flag carrier, to be in this emergency bringing back the Argentines who are abroad and so we are doing it. “

This Thursday two more special flights will depart, one to Miami and the other to Madrid, according to the schedule released on Wednesday by the company.
