Argentina’s main international airport, Ministro Pistarini (commonly called Ezeiza) is 35 km from the Buenos Aires city center and is not serviced by subway or train.
After a long international flight landing in Ezeiza’s chaotic arrivals area, the last thing you want to do is change money at the airport (you’ll get a horrible rate, unless you go to the airport’s National Bank, only open during office hours) and then hunt down a legal taxi and haggle in funky Italian-like Spanish.
Travelers should also be aware that there is a ‘mafia’ of taxis at Ezeiza and even locals consider catching a cab at the airport a sketchy prospect. Those who do decide to take a chance and just hail a taxi at the airport should go out of the terminal and find an official taxi that is dropping passengers off in the departure area, instead of grabbing an empty one waiting outside of arrivals.
There are shuttle buses available at the airport such as Manual Tienda Leon, which leave every thirty minutes or so, but the drawback to that option is that there is often a line after flights land, so there may be a wait of up to an hour.
Normally ride sharing apps are great option internationally, but this is Argentina and some online ride-sharing apps are in legal limbo here. Uber is blocked on the free airport wifi because the government supports the taxi unions in their fight against Uber. If you have your own data plan that works locally you can try to call an Uber, but be aware drivers often cancel airport pickups because of ongoing clashes with taxi drivers.
For safety, comfort and convenience, Wander Argentina offers private pick-up from Buenos Aires’ Ministro Pistarini (EZE) to anywhere in Buenos Aires city.
After booking online below, you’ll just send a Whatsapp message on the airport’s free wifi (AA2000) when you are going through customs and our friendly driver will be waiting for you at the arrivals area.
The car is a roomy sedan with air conditioning and heat and wifi.
Transfers between Ezeiza and Aeroparque Jorge Newbery
It is important to note that Ezeiza is the international airport, but domestic flights do not fly out of there, so those traveling to another destination in Argentina will have to get a transfer to the local airport.
We also offer direct transfer from Ezeiza (EZE) to the domestic airport, Aeroparque Jorge Newbery (AEP) and vice versa, as well as transfers to newer domestic airport El Palomar (EPA), which is the hub for budget airlines such as Jetsmart and Flybondi.
If you prefer, it is also possible to rent a car from the airport, check out our driving information and car rental page here. Since Buenos Aires has pretty aggressive driving and you may be tired after a long flight, renting a car immediately at the airport is only recommended for experienced drivers.
