Likelihood that Bariloche airport will actually open Dec 20?

Anyone have an idea? We'd like to book to fly from Bariloche to El Calafate in mid-february, but it seems like a risky move considering. Is the airport really closed for "maintenance" or is the ongoing ash going to keep it closed longer?

Thanks.

Hello 5stonely, and welcome to the forum.

Aerolineas Argentinas announced yesterday they cancelled all their flights to Bariloche until March. Although one might expect Lan to follow suit, they haven't yet announced what they will do.

The other options you should consider for going to Bariloche in February would be flying either to Neuquén or Esquel + bus ride to Bariloche, or (very long) bus ride from Calafate.

There has been no official information as for the reasons of postponement of the reopening.
