Flight from Europe to Ushuaia via Buenos Aires
March 2nd, 2005
Getting to Ushuaia is a long trip regardless of your departing city, however, the flight to Ushuaia can be particularly long for passengers not coming from American continent. As the ship to Antarctica will not wait for you, arriving to Ushuaia well early is a good idea to create an extra time buffer, in case flights or luggages are delayed.

After an on-time landing in Buenos Aires EZE (international) airport and a transfer to Buenos Aires AEP (national) airport, I finally board an Austral Lineas MD80 ready to fly to Ushuaia. The transfer time from Buenos Aires international to national airport is not too long and there are many collective taxis in addition to private transfers, however, it's best to have at least 4 hours of spare time from scheduled arrival time of international flight and the departure of the flight to Ushuaia.
