Airport Facts

Air Options From Buenos Aires: Aerolineas Argentinas offers service between Buenos Aires and San Rafael four times a week at this writing. Flights leave from the Buenos Aires city airport known as Aeroparque (Jorge Newberry) -- not Ezeiza, the international airport. There are shuttle buses on Tienda Leon which provide transportation between the two airports, and an information desk at either airport that can help you. Flights to San Rafael leave about 7 a.m. Return flights to Buenos Aires depart about 11 a.m. (Times are approximate because they can change.)

There are also numerous flights from Buenos Aires each day from both airports to the city of Mendoza on a number of different airlines. From the Mendoza airport you can take a taxi to the bus terminal (10 pesos / US$4) and then take a bus to San Rafael. Two frequent lines are TAC and Uspallata. TAC has service about once an hour during the day, except there are no buses at noon, so if you miss the 11 a.m. bus you have to wait until 1 p.m. Cost is about 15 pesos (US$6) Travel time is 3 hours, 15 minutes.

Other Air Options: There are lots of airlines serving South America which provide connections to Mendoza via Buenos Aires or Santiago, Chile. I often fly to Mendoza from Miami via Santiago on Lan Chile or American Airlines. Often the flight is cheaper than flights to Buenos Aires alone. United, Delta, Southern Winds, Aerolineas Argentinas and a few others offer service to Mendoza via Buenos Aires from overseas. Once at the Mendoza airport you can rent a car (expensive) or take the bus as explained above.
