Flights for Antarctica trip

Hey all, I have booked a 10 day cruise to Antarctica, departing from Ushuaia Argentina. I am coming from the US. I am not seeing very many options on flights. Is it common to have to land in Brazil and have to change airports via taxishuttle service?

Hi Benjamin – I booked an Antarctica cruise departing in December and have the same question. It looks like there are regular flights daily between Buenos Aires and Ushuaia. I’m traveling from the East Coast, probably will fly Canadian Airlines through Toronto to BA, stay a day, then hop down on a separate booking to Ushuaia. I’ll keep you posted as I learn more.

I would love to connect with fellow travelers to Antarctica. I’m planning on going on a cruise out of Ushuaia. I’m traveling solo & would love to exchange any helpful tips.

We are planning to book last minute for the end of November. We will be booking flights to BA from the US, then a separate flight to Ushuaia. It comes up cheaper that way.

Most flights to Ushuaia leave from AEP, the local airport in Buenos Aires. I've always flown in to EZE (the international airport) overnighted, or a few days in Buenos Aires and then gone to AEP for the flight south. Some flights out of Ushuaia do land at EZE and you can get right to your homeward international flight.

You can check flights via PTY (panama) or SCL (Santiago, Chile) which might offer different options.
