Nearest airport to Palermo Soho

We are staying at the Glu Hotel next January prior to a cruise.

During our stay in BA we are going to Iguazu falls for a night.

I want to book my Aerolineas flight but they have flights from two BA airports.

Can anyone help by telling me which is the most convenient airport to our hotel and an approx cost of a taxi.

Thanks

Tony

Near Palermo is AEP ( Aeroparque) a 15min taxi ride from your hotel and no more of 30 ARS

Alewal, as usual, is correct. However, when you check the cost of the ticket to Iguazu and return, you may decide to stay two nights. There is plenty to see in Iguazu and then you can also go to Iguacu, the Brazilian side of the Falls for another, also spectacular, view.

tonymul,

The domestic flight airport is Aeroparque (AEP) alhough Aerolineas has a daily flight to Iguazu from EZE (Ezeiza)

Don't choose EZE: it is a longer distance (50 min to 1 hour from Palermo Soho) and of course the cost of taxi will be much higher...

Tonymul,

Enjoy the Glu, we just stayed there and loved it. AEP is much closer, a very easy taxi ride. You might check LAN's flight schedule as well, we flew them to Mendoza and back and had a good experience. And you might wait a while to book for next January, both in hopes of getting better pricing and because their schedules are likely to change between now and then.

Concur with Seattle. Check LAN.

As noted above, Aerolineas is NOT reliable. Repeat. Aerolineas is not reliable.

I will give Aerolineas this though: When they do manage to get their aircraft off the ground, the flight attendants are young and vivacious (think Pan Am stewardesses back in the day), the wine is included and drinkable, and the snacks are tasty (Chocolate Havanna Alfojores, last time I flew).

But what about the suggestion of Seattle to wait for booking to get better prices later on? Doubt if this is true, in a country with more than 20% inflation per year..... besides January is holiday season as well, so I would consider booking tickets right now.....or am I wrong and does someone have other experiences with domestic flights?

Heart of Argentina, I suspect you are right about pricing. With such a high rate of inflation, locking in sooner rather than later seems adviseable.

I do agree with Seattle though about schedule changes. Both LAN and Aerolineas seem to constantly adjust their departure times and drop/add flights. This fact of Argentina life makes it particularly challenging to plan ahead.
