Aerolineas Argentinas has unveiled plans to resume service to Mexico City next year as it reassesses its international network in the light of its plans to join SkyTeam.

The state-owned carrier says it will launch on 3 March 2011 four weekly Airbus A340 flights from Buenos Aires Ezeiza to Mexico City.

SkyTeam earlier this month announced it had accepted Aerolineas' application to join the alliance and the carrier will become its first South American member in 2012.

SkyTeam member Aeromexico, which has been helping the alliance in its campaign to recruit more members from Latin America, unveiled plans earlier this week to up its own Mexico City-Buenos Aires frequencies from daily to 10 weekly flights in December.

Mexicana also operated the route before suspending operations in August.
