The airport offers numerous amenities for the traveller including bureaux de change outlets, cash machines (ATMs), shops, restaurants and a small business office.

Transportation in and around Buenos Aires

The Riccheri Motorway connects the airport with downtown Buenos Aires. Passengers have several ground transportation options including busses, rental vehicles, taxis, and chauffeured and VIP cars. There is no rail linking the airport to the city. When you book a Buenos Aires flight, it is advisable to make transportation arrangements at the same time. However, you can always make a reservation at the transportation booth outside the arrivals hall after you land. A cabotaje at the Jorge Newbery AeroPark Airport offers connections from Buenos Aires to various cities in Argentina. Walking is an excellent way to explore the city, but it can be dangerous to ride a bike as drivers have little patience with cyclists.
