Getting Around

BA Airport

In Argentina we have two main airports, the international one called Ministro Pistarini and the domestic one called Jorge Newbery.

 

JORGE NEWBEY AIRPORT (AEROPARQUE)

Let’s start with Jorge Newbery, this domestic airport is located in downtown, just a few minutes from Retiro. Here converge almost all of the local flights and some of the international flights like the ones from Brazil, Chile, Uruguay and Paraguay.
Inside there are a variety of shops and restaurants to be comfortable when you wait to departure. Also, there are several transportation companies to take you to your hotel. This is considered a small airport, there is one terminal for commercial passengers but we found another ones like militar, industrial (for private flights) and cargo.

MINISTRO PISTARINI (EZEIZA)

Ministro Pistarini is the biggest airport in Buenos Aires, is located in Ezeiza, 22 kilometers away from downtown. Also, there are some domestic flight arriving but it is not frequent.
The latest news: They became Brazilian Friendly, giving support and special assistance to the passengers from this country. If we talk about how many terminal it has, we have to say 4. Terminal A for all the international airlines, here is where you will be arriving. Terminal B, is another pre-boarding area but today is not frequently used. Terminal C is for domestic flights and operated by Aerolineas Argentinas, Austral and LATAM. the last one, terminal for V.I.P, it was an initiative from Aeropuertos Argentina 2000 (they manage the airport) to receive private flights.
This airport doesn’t count with public transportation so if you want to arrive to this area you must get a private bus or by car.
The shopping area is really big and the restaurants and coffee shops are available almost all night. The duty free shop is located when you are in the departure area, these free shops are big, well equipped and you can get a variety of stuff like underwear, clothes, perfumes, candys, technology, etc.
I hope this information will be useful to plan your trip!
