TRAVEL

Buenos Aires is well-connected and easy to reach, with three airports, two bus stations, and a port and cruise terminal.

SkyTeam is our Official Alliance Network for air travel. Seamless air travel—and attractive airfares—are available via SkyTeam Global Meetings for the Summit. By booking and buying your airline ticket via the dedicated link below, you will benefit from exclusive discounts of up to 15% for both Business and Economy Class.

To book your air travel now, click here or visit www.skyteam.com/en/business-solutions/global-meetings and enter event ID 4555S.

Buenos Aires is served by three airports:

  • Ministro Pistarini International Airport, Ezeiza (EZE)

The biggest airport in Argentina is in Ezeiza, 32 km (20 miles) from the centre 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 centre of the city takes about 50 minutes.

  • Jorge Newbery Airport (also known as Aeroparque (AEP))

Located in the city itself, in the Palermo neighbourhood, this airport is within 25 minutes of the main hotels in Buenos Aires. It serves mainly domestic flights and flights to neighbouring countries.

  • El Palomar (EPA)

Located 18km (11 miles) from the city, El Palomar Airport began serving a range of low-cost domestic flights to destinations throughout Argentina in 2018.

Taxis are readily available at all three 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.

All three airports are served by public bus lines, and there is also a train station at el Palomar. Note that services can be crowded at peak times and there is little space for luggage. You’ll need a SUBE travel card to use the bus or train. These are available from authorized stockists. You can use the “BA Cómo Llego” app to see how you can arrive at your destination via public transport.

The Terminal de Omnibus de Retiro, or Retiro bus station provides hundreds of bus services to destinations in Argentina and other Latin American countries. Long-distance bus travel is common in Argentina and most bus 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. Assistance can be obtained at the Tourist Assistance Centre at unit 83.

There are regular ferry services between Buenos Aires and Montevideo and Colonia de Sacramento in Uruguay. The ferry terminals in Buenos Aires are in Puerto Madero and La Boca. The following companies run services:

Buquebus

Colonia Express
