Cheap Flights to Buenos Aires

Argentina’s capital is a boisterous, cosmopolitan city which has somehow managed to distill the passion and elegance of the country into one brilliant, exciting package. With the rarified, cultured face of a Europe and the vibrant energy of South America, Buenos Aires captures the heart and soul of anyone lucky enough to stroll down its boulevards. 

Flights to Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires is served by two airports. If you’re an international traveler, chances are you’ll be flying into Ministro Pistarini International Airport (EZE), aka Ezeiza International Airport, in Buenos Aires. Aerolíneas Argentinas and LAN Argentina use it as a hub for international flights. It serves 8.5 million passengers a year, which includes 85% of the country’s international visitors. 

The domestic airport, Aeroparque Jorge Newbery (AEP), serves mostly domestic flights, or flights from nearby countries.  People traveling onto destinations outside of Buenos Aires will often need to make a connection here, using one of the cheap shuttle buses. Travel time is about an hour, give or take an hour for traffic. Leave yourself a good amount of spare time for connections. 

What to Do in Buenos Aires

Tango is Buenos Aires’ best ambassador, but you haven’t lived until you’ve seen the real thing in a crowded little club where the confidence, sex-appeal, and gorgeous tension of the dance hang heavy in the atmosphere. Get your hands on a copy of the TangoMap Guide, which will clue you in to where the best Milongas are to be found. 

Besides dance, music, art, and architecture each have huge roles to play in the mystique of this city. Buenos Aires is huge and made up of many diverse districts, each with its own treasure and specialties. 

Whatever else you do, the food and wine here are incredible enough to feature largely in your day. Dinner is served extremely late in Argentina, often after 10pm, so make sure you eat your fill at lunch. If you need a top up in between, we recommend the flaky, savoury empanadas available on almost any street corner. 

Advice to tourists visiting Buenos Aires

International visitors to Argentina are required to pay a reciprocity fee on entry, which is determined by the visa fees paid by Argentinean citizens when visiting their countries. The fee covers multiple entries over a period of time determined by your nationality. 

The seasons are the reverse of the Northern Hemisphere, so October through January is beautiful sunny summertime, and it’s when you’ll see the city at its lively best.
