Aerolineas Argentinas flight AR-2714 had to make an emergency landing in Posadas, Argentina, on March 20th.
The Embraer ERJ-190 plane heading from Ministro Pistarini International Airport to Cataratas del Iguazu International Airport, Argentina, was diverted after the crew received indication of smoke in the cabin.
The plane landed uneventfully. All sixty-eight people aboard remained unharmed.
On July 5, 2014, an Aerolineas Argentinas Airbus A340-300 (LV-FPV) headed from Barcelona,SP (Spain) to Buenos Aires,BA (Argentina) was taxiing for departure as a UTAir Boeing 767-300(VQ-BSX) en route from Moscow, Russia to Barcelona was on approach. As the video shows, it looks like a close call. The UTAIR saw the Airbus on the runway, and less than ten seconds from touchdown pulled up and performed a go-around, making a safe landing fifteen minutes later.
The Airbus took off twenty minutes later. The incident is under investigation, and it has not been determined if this was an Air Traffic Control error or if the Argentinian plane was there without clearance. The airport and ATC say that there was sufficient clearance for landing, and neither Aerolineas Argentinas nor UTAIR filed a safety report.
On Jul 7th 2014,an investigation was opened into the runway incursion.
