Important Information About Changing Airports in Argentina

Changing Airports Within Buenos Aires, Argentina

There are two airports in Buenos Aires, Argentina:  

  • Ezeiza Ministro Pistarini International Airport (EZE).
  • Jorge Newbery Aeropark domestic airport (AEP).

Some airline itineraries require a lengthy ground transport between EZE and AEP to connect to San Carlos de Bariloche Airport (BRC).  Other itineraries offer direct flights from EZE to San Carlos de Bariloche Airport (BRC), avoiding the airport-to-airport ground transport. 

North Carolina Outward Bound recommends choosing a direct flight from EZE to BRC; however, flight availability changes regularly.

If your airline itinerary requires ground transportation between EZE and AEP, this transport is NOT included in your airline itinerary. You must arrange it separately before day of travel. If you choose this option, make sure your airline itinerary allows for 5 hours layover between the two airports. It will take significant time to claim baggage, clear customs, cross the city, check in and go through security again. Plus, there may be unforeseen delays due to traffic, road construction or weather.
