American Airlines Flight 943 begins it's descent for Buenos Aires with a promise of an on time arrival. Although I have a few hours to make my connection to Ushuaia this is good news. With my customs and immigration forms complete I am excited to enter Argentina, the process bringing me one step closer to Antarctica.
Apparently, this is a busy time for arrivals into Buenos Aires (EZE) especially since the downtown domestic airport (AEP) is closed for construction. All of the domestic flights are temporarily operating out of the main airport.
I continue listening to “American Airlines After Dark”, a nice selection of jazz music and it does not seem too long before we smoothly touchdown. Welcome to Argentina!
In the immigration area the tourist are separated from the locals in order to purchase an Argentina Entry Visa. This visa has varying prices from $100 to $140 depending on your nationality and length of stay in the country. Of course, cash and credit cards are accepted.
The immigration and custom process is quite welcoming and not before long I am headed to Terminal C to make my domestic connection to Ushuaia. Terminal C is to the left outside of International Arrivals and is about a 10 to 15 minute walk.
I arrive in time to make an earlier flight on Aerolineas Argentina. However, after several airport pages “Pasejo Senorita Delago” shows up at the last moment and takes away my chance to continue southbound.
