Dallas-based American Airlines has applied for authority to fly between Miami and Buenos Aires, Argentina to permanently offer four seasonal flights on the pairing.

The four flights complement American's existing double-daily service between the two cities, operated with Boeing 777-200ERs.

This past March, American received authority to operate the four flights from 2 July to 23 August, but the allocation of route authorities was only temporary.

In a regulatory filing with the US Department of Transportation (DOT), American says it plans to operate the additional four flights from 18 November to 5 April, and they will be operated with 777-200ER aircraft.

Aerolíneas Argentinas and Lan Argentina also operate scheduled passenger flights between the two cities.
