Clean, efficient, friendly modern airline. Absolutely no complaints, especially given the rock bottom rate we paid!

No issues with the airplane or staff. Travelers to Argentina should know, however, that the airlines require proof of a ticket for leaving the country before boarding their flight. We had only booked one way so we had to book a bus ticket to Uruguay using our cell phones. It was very disconcerting. (Some very kind airline staff helped us with that). And even more so because no one at customs in Argentina asked for any return information! A last minute return flight booking at the gate was quoted at an outrageous sum.

Our first flight of the day on Aerolineas, from Salta to Buenos Aires was delayed an hour. We were supposed to have two hours in AEP (Buenos Aires), to connect with our international flight to Rio de Janeiro, but ended up with only 1 hour from landing to takeoff. Because the tickets were booked separately we had to collect our bags and recheck them. But the baggage claim area was packed with people and there were two flights before ours lined up for the belt. We knew it would be at least half an hour just to get the bags... it was too tight. So I went to the Aerolineas desk and a nice woman checked the status and referred me to the Customer Service desk. The man there made some calls and assured me that they would pull our bags and put them on our flight to Rio. He told us to go directly to the gate. We did, and needed every minute to go through customs and arrived just in time for boarding. Amazingly, our bags were there when we arrived in Rio, and we were very happy that we made it with our things!

At Ezeiza Airport the Aerolineas Argentinas attendants for the checking were too slow! Food/ dinner very poor. The flight/ pilot was good. Crew was good. At the JFK I have to wait almost 4 hours for the luggage!!

All planes had nice Sky interiors. Pitch was better than LAN B789s. All flights arrived between 15 and 20 min. early. I had to check another bag between 2 flights (I had left one in a locker at 2nd airport) and it was no issue at all, personnel at Ezeiza were efficient and friendly.

Although IFE was ok (large new screens, good brightness), the movie selection wasnt stellar, and there was no classical music to relax. But these are minor points. Food was regular airplane food, nothing special but not worse than anywhere else.

Plane was brand new. Got to the airport early, personnel at the gate asked out of their own initiative if I wanted a better seat on the emergency row. They serve the usual airplane drinks (coffee, coke, water, juice, etc.) and give you a bag of trail mix and a cereal bar - not as good as the alfajores from a few years ago but still way better than what you'd get in North America or Europe these days. They offered streaming to your own device for IFE but I didn't use it. It's a pleasure to see so much improvement to Aerolineas vs. a few years ago. The monitors had dozens of flights and they were all on-time, both ways.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
