Destination Buenos Aires

Arriving to Buenos Aires

By flight

Buenos Aires has two international airports. The Ministro Pistarini International Airport also known as Ezeiza Airport, is the major hub of Argentina’s capital, which is located 31km/19.2 miles from Buenos Aires downtown, on the southwest side of the city.  The second is Jorge Newbery International Airport, only 7km/4.3 miles from Buenos Aires city center. However, despite being international, it mainly serves local flights and journeys to neighboring countries (Uruguay, Paraguay, etc.).
