    Aerolíneas Argentinas ( ), formally Aerolíneas Argentinas S.A., is Argentina's largest airline and serves as the country's flag carrier. Owned in its majority by the Argentine Government, the airline is headquartered in the Torre Bouchard, located in San Nicolás, Buenos Aires. Aerolíneas Argentinas Cargo, domestic airline Austral Líneas Aéreas, ramp service provider Aerohandling, cargo division JetPaq S.A., and tourism operator Optar S.A. are listed as Aerolíneas Argentinas subsidiaries. Despite sharing all their operating structure, Aerolíneas Argentinas operates under IATA airline designator AR and ICAO airline designator ARG, whereas AU and AUT, respectively, are assigned to Austral Líneas Aéreas operations. The callsign for Aerolíneas Argentinas is ARGENTINA.

    The airline and its subsidiaries operates from two hubs, both located in Buenos Aires. Operations of domestic and regional flights are concentrated at Aeroparque Jorge Newbery, which also serves as its operating base, whereas Ministro Pistarini International Airport is mainly used for international services, although some regional and few domestic services are operated as well. The company provides free-of-charge transportation to those passengers that need to change from one airport to the other.

    Under Skytrax five-star ranking, the Aerolíneas Argentinas service merits three stars. The company does not currently participate in any airline alliance, although it is expected it will join SkyTeam in 2012.
