Flights to Buenos Aires

Feel the rhythm of Buenos Aires

Wide boulevards, stately mansions, lively squares and countless city palaces. Book flights to Buenos Aires and explore the amazing Plaza de Mayo and Plaza San Martín. In the old part of Buenos Aires, every stone has a soul, but the new districts are equally enchanting. Puerto Madero, for instance, has a multitude of restaurants and futuristic buildings. And then there is the delicious Argentine cuisine… You’ll soon see why Buenos Aires is called the Paris of South America.

Mix of old and new

Buenos Aires has a mix of neighbourhoods, each with its own character. The oldest part of the city is Palermo Viejo, with a backdrop of winding streets, timeworn buildings and attractive restaurants. Palermo is also the site of the Buenos Aires Zoo, where even the animal enclosures have a historical character. Explore the antique shops of San Telmo or walk across La Recoleta Cemetery - the largest in South America - where Evita Perón is buried. Buenos Aires is not just the ideal destination for a city trip, it is also the perfect starting point for a tour of Argentina. Let yourself be surprised: book a flight to Buenos Aires now!

Birthplace of the tango

Argentinians have a passion for 3 things: food, football and of course, tango. At special tango evenings, called milongas, young and old alike display their mastery of this sensual dance to perfection. In between dances, tuck into a tender Argentinian steak and a fine glass of wine. Looking for a place to spend the night? Buenos Aires has many hotels, but for a really special stay, check into one of the estancias, Argentinian ranches just outside the city.
