About Buenos Aires
Travelling to Buenos Aires:
Buenos Aires is well-connected and easy to reach, with three airports, two coach stations, and a port and cruise terminal.
- Ministro Pistarini International Airport, Ezeiza (EZE)
The biggest airport in Argentina is located in Ezeiza, 32km (20 miles) from the center of Buenos Aires city. Most long-haul international flights arrive and depart from here, along with some domestic and regional flights. The journey from the airport to the center of the city takes about 50 minutes.
- Jorge Newbery Airport, known as Aeroparque (AEP)
Located in the city itself, in the Palermo neighborhood, this airport is within 25 minutes of the main hotels in Buenos Aires. It serves mainly domestic flights and flights to neighboring countries.

Getting to the city from the airports
Taxis are readily available at both airports.
Private transfers can be booked in advance or on arrival. Tienda León runs buses from Ezeiza airport to its base in Puerto Madero, in the center of Buenos Aires city.
Several public bus lines stop at Jorge Newbery Airport. You’ll need a SUBE card to use them – ask at Jorge Newbery Tourist Assistance Center)
The Terminal de Omnibus de Retiro, or Retiro coach station, provides hundreds of coach services to destinations in Argentina and other Latin American countries. Long-distance bus travel is common in Argentina and most coach companies offer very comfortable “cama-ejecutivo” (executive bed) class seats, and often provide food on long-distance services. Dozens of companies operate from the coach station. Tickets can be bought at the booths on the upper floor, at authorised vendors in the city, or online.
