All intra-country flights route through BA?

I am in the initial planning stages of my trip to Argentina. Based on the time I have, I would like to see Mendoza region, El Calafate, Ushuaia, and BA. I have looked at a couple of airline sites and I am thinking I need to fly through BA to get between each of my destinations. Am I looking in the wrong place? (I am just not sure if I am missing some obvious direct flight options.)

Thank you

It depends on the time of year, but I found most flights went to and from BA. It is the hub, and by far the biggest centre of population.

The alternative would be long-distance buses.

Although Buenos Aires is the hub, many (maybe most) flights from Bue to Ushuaia make a stop at El Calafate.

You should not have problems booking AEP - FTE - USH - AEP.

For Mendoza, you will need to book a separate AEP - MZA - AEP

AEP: Buenos Aires' domestic airport

Just a thought: you say you looked at "a couple of airlines' sites".

It's easier to look up your flight options through sites like Kayak, Expedia, etc.; see all of them in one screen at the same time ... and then, book directly with the airline. (*)
