    Unable to contact anyone at Aerolineas Argentinas, phone or e-mail. Perhaps you can supply a contact. I do have one question you could also help with. Flying in to EZE from Dallas do I have enough time to go through customs after getting my bags and boarding a flight to USH all with two hours?

    • Hi Ernest, it can be possible if the passport control goes smooth. Sometimes it can take up to one hour. Also, you probably need to change to another terminal. That’s about 10min walking.

  3. Hey Glenn,

    Do you know where we can find travel restrictions between provinces? I am going to Buenos Aires and planning to visit Cordoba this coming January. Do you know of any travel restrictions that exists because of cvoid?

    Thanks again for your help. I love your blog!

    • Hi Alex, there are no restrictions anymore for traveling around in the country. When you arrive in Argentina and pass all the controls, then you are good to go.

  4. How much time do I need to allow to transfer from AEP airport to EZE airport with some comfort? I am likely to be travelling on a Saturday either in the morning or early afternoon. Connecting flight at EZE departs either at 14:20 hrs or 23:10 hrs. Thank you for your help.

    • Hi Lee, I should calculate 1 hour of driving from AEP to EZE. Saturday is mostly calm on the roads in the morning. Cheers
