Aerolineas Argentinos, Argentina's flag carrier, has requested from the Civil Aviation Authority to begin direct flights to Tel Aviv, a Tourism Ministry spokesman confirmed Tuesday. The move would make the airline the only direct route into Tel Aviv from South America. Tourism Minister Avraham Hirchson hinted at the possibility at the opening of the 12th annual International Mediterranean Tourism Market in Tel Aviv Tuesday saying he "hopes Aerolineas Argentinos will soon start flights to Israel." South America to Israel travelers currently fly via the US or Europe. The ministry has identified the continent as a growth area for tourism targeting its strong Catholic population.
