Ushuaia Airport Guide
Many international airports in the world boast of the status of being the primary gateway to key destinations in their countries. The Ushuaia – Malvinas Argentinas International Airportis different. Having been the southernmost international airport in the world, this Ushuaia airport is not only the main point of entry to the Provincia de Tierra del Fuego in Argentina, but also the main cruise-ship gateway of tourists and expedition members all the way to Antarctic.
With a ground capacity only fit for small aircrafts and facilities designed for a few thousand passengers every year, the number of its passenger traffic is considered overwhelmingly better than what it should be. Thanks to the nearby port facilities, the location of this airport is ideal also for land and sea travel to other terminals in southern Argentina.
Although the Ushuaia airport is officially classified as small airport since its first operation in 1995, its single concrete runway is longer than many bigger international airports at more than three kilometers. Its sufficient runway and taxiway are also capable of receiving flights of medium to large aircrafts, such as a Boeing 747.
In the past, many kinds of commercial and private jetliners have used the airport facilities and until now, seasonal flights contracted by the cruise-ship terminal continue to land flights in the airport. Aerolineas Argentinas operated several 747s until February 2012 while Tower Air regularly had flights here in an earlier time. Chartered flights from Air France Concorde were also seen using the airport as point of entry to vacation destinations like Buenos Aires and Easter Island and Santiago in Chile. Several other chartered flights have been operating in the airport as well, and these are expected to continue offering seasonal flights any time soon. These airlines include First Choice Airways, Condor and LTU.
Currently, six airline companies regularly operate from the Ushuaia airport, three of which are on a seasonal basis. Aerolineas Argentinas and LAN Argentina fly passengers to and from key cities locally while LADE offer flights to as far as Brazil. Gol Transportes Aeros, LAN Airlines and TAM Airlines all offer seasonal domestic and international flights.
Since the airport is often used as gateway to smaller islands, transfer arrangements from airport to sea port are often done by tour agencies, some of which have sales office inside the facility.
