Argentine airline unions are threatening to strike if the government goes ahead with plans to evict a Chilean-owned local subsidiary of Latin America's biggest carrier from its Buenos Aires airport hangar.

Regulators have given LATAM's LAN Argentina until month's end to vacate its hangar at Aeroparque airport in downtown Buenos Aires.

LATAM says Argentina's government wants to undermine the company's competitive advantage against money-losing state-owned Aerolineas Argentinas.
