Travel in Argentina increases during the Carnival holidays

According to the Argentine Tourism Observatory, since last Friday more than 900,000 people have traveled by plane, train and bus to the Atlantic coast, Mar del Plata, Córdoba, Misiones, Mendoza, Salta, San Carlos de Bariloche and Corrientes, among others. .

Many also chose to visit this capital, where celebrations will flood Avenida de Mayo on Tuesday.

For his part, Transport Minister Diego Giuliano assured that this is a record passenger movement this summer season and it is possible that the indicators registered in the phase before the Covid-19 pandemic would be exceeded.

Although high temperatures are not uncommon here at this time of year, an unusual amount of cold air has caused thermometers to plummet and snowfall has been recorded in provinces such as Chubut and Tierra del Fuego.

However, the trips were not interrupted and Giuliano confirmed the reinforcement of measures to ensure safe transfers until the 22nd of this month, the last bank holiday.

To this end, members of the National Road Safety Agency and the National Transport Regulation Commission are being mobilized.
