Ministro Pistarini International Airport, Ezeiza (EZE)
The biggest airport in Argentina is located in Ezeiza, 32km (20 miles) from the centre of Buenos Aires city. Most long-haul international flights arrive and depart from here, along with some domestic and regional flights. The journey from the airport to the centre of the city takes about 50 minutes.

Jorge Newbery Airport, known as Aeroparque (AEP)
Located in the city itself, in the Palermo neighbourhood, this airport is within 25 minutes of the main hotels in Buenos Aires. It serves mainly domestic flights and flights to neighbouring countries.

El Palomar (EPA)
Located 18km (11 miles) from the city, El Palomar Airport began serving a range of low-cost domestic flights to destinations throughout Argentina in 2018.

Public Transportation
To travel by bus or subte (underground metro) in Buenos Aires, you'll need to get a rechargeable SUBE travel card and charge it with credit. SUBE cards are available at subte stations, at our eight Tourist Assistance Centers and at many "kioskos" (corner shops selling confectionary and tobacco) throughout the city. Cards can be charged with credit at all subte stations, national lottery outlets, and at some kioskos with automated terminals. To find your nearest point of sale, the SUBE website has a map of SUBE vendors.

Subte (Underground train network)
The Buenos Aires subte was the first underground metro (subway) system in Latin America (line A opened in 1913), and it's often the quickest way to get around the city, especially when travelling to and from the downtown area. There are six lines (lineas) A, B, C, D, E and H, which connect the city's main avenues, train stations and coach stations. Lines A, B, C, D and E converge in the centre of the city. Trains run every three to ten minutes depending on the line, from about 5.30am to 11.30pm Monday to Friday, 6.00am to midnight on Saturdays, and 8.00am to 10.30pm on Sundays and public holidays. Unsurprisingly, trains can get very crowded at peak commuter times (8am-9.30am and 5pm-7pm). Stations have free WiFi access.
The subte website has a detailed map of the network, and you can download a copy of the map as a pdf here.

Taxis
BA is awash with licensed black and yellow taxis and in busy areas you're unlikely to wait more than a couple of minutes for one. Often the most comfortable way to get from A to B, they can be flagged down directly off the street on the right-hand side - you can tell if one is available if the ‘libre’ (free) sign is lit up in the windscreen. Licensed taxis run on meters, and fares are exclusively in Argentine pesos (ARS $).
Private hire taxis called remises can be booked in advance through agencies, and you can also book regular taxis using the city government's mobile e-hailing app BA Taxi, available for Android and iphone.
