Flight info for Argentina
Argentina Flight Info
Argentina can be an expensive destination to book, as airfare tends to be quite high. But depending on the routing and the season, you can arrange for a lower airfare price. The best prices are offered during the low season, from March to June or September to November. Also take into consideration, that flights on the weekends are typically more expensive than flights on the weekdays.
Ezeiza International Airport (EZE) in Buenos Aires is the international hub for all travelers, and the majority of people visiting Argentina fly into the country here. Although, there is a separate domestic airport in Buenos Aires, Aeroparque Jorge Newbery (AEP), available to those that are transferring from an international to domestic flight. Make sure to factor in the time to transfer between airports (usually about an hour long transfer with traffic). Flights to Paraguay and Uruguay depart from AEP. Double-check your flight info to make sure you're headed to the correct airport!
There are plenty of airlines that offer regular scheduled flights from the UK to Buenos Aires, via another European city. Unfortunately, there are no direct flights from Ireland to Argentina, but if you are trying to reduce traveling costs, consider flying to London, and making a connection there.
