The San Carlos de Bariloche airport, or simply known as the Bariloche airport, is the international airport that operates and serves Argentina’s San Carlos de Bariloche city. The airport is located 13 kilometers out of the city and uses the international airport code of BRC. This airport is considered the fourth largest airport in the country because of its visitor traffic. Interestingly, takes its name after Teniente Luis Candelaria whose name goes down in history as the first man to fly over the Andes.
Bariloche airport follows similar procedures for arriving and departing passengers. Passengers who are departing from San Carlos de Bariloche should first present their airline tickets along with personal documentation at the check-in counters. Also, passengers should despatch their baggage which they will check-in for their flight. Passengers should be present at the airport at least 2 to 3 hours before the scheduled time of departure. Once the boarding pass has been obtained and the proper security checks and immigration procedures have been followed, passengers are then instructed to check out the time and the gate where they would have to show up. For the personal documentations, passports should always be presented for international travels, together with the appropriate visa, when necessary. Arriving passengers should follow the usual procedure – pass through immigration, retrieve checked-in baggage at the conveyor belts, and head on towards the arrival hall where the exits are located. Keep in mind that upon arrival, the passport and the required visa should also be presented to the immigration officers.
The airport actually has been closed for quite some time due to the Chilean Puyehue volcano eruption. The airport re-opened on September of 2011, when an Aerolineas Argentinas plane arrived at the terminal. Nearly all airlines cancelled their flights due to the strict security precautions in the area. The airport has not been receiving flights for around four months.
Bariloche airport has a duty free shop located on the baggage claim area at the arrival area. This shop is the first store passengers will encounter, and the shop where passengers may buy products which are tax-free before passing through customs. The shop not only allows passengers to shop for last minute to-buys, it also permits passengers to buy liquid products such as wines and spirits. This lessens the hassle of potential dilemmas like confiscation by security personnel.
