Compared to other airports around the world it sucks.

Your only option is to either take a taxi or the bus which takes forever. Also that passenger was correct since the train (especially the one that runs from Ezeiza to Constitucion) runs through alot of impoverished neighborhoods which attract alot of criminals.

Transferring from an international flight at Ezeiza to a domestic one at Jorge Newbury is even worse as the only option you have then is to take a taxi which can get stuck in traffic on Av. General Paz.

That of neighborhoods which attract alot of criminals is a lie, Buenos Aires compared to other Latin American cities is the safest

Compared to Guatemala City and Caracas sure, but I still would not advise someone who has just arrived in Argentina to take the local bus/train since they will immediately stand out which makes them vulnerable targets especially if they have luggage.

The most common and current to take the world's airports is a taxi

True, but it would be nice if either Ezeiza or Aeroparque had some type of train link to the city center like New York, Chicago, Tokyo, London, Madrid, or Washington DC since it makes travelling to/from the airport more economical for tourists and locals alike.

Transportation does indeed stink to city center. I certainly don't recommend public transit for tourists, due to the amount of theft. (And extends outside of public transit to dumb tourists just walking around.)

However Joseph85 is right in that violent crime is pretty low in BA. Petty theft is about all a tourist has to worry about.

I think BA has bigger worries right now than having a train link the airport to city center, as nice as that might be. On another note, the split of traffic between AEP & EZE really hurts Aerolineas, as LAN and a couple others have really exploited the lack of connecting ability. For my flight this winter into COR, I didn't even see any nonstop flights to EZE. Everything wanted to route via SCL or LIM.

My comments about crime were mostly directed to pickpockets, thieves, etc. Most violent crime like anywhere else in the world is centered around people who personally know the victim.

That is certainly the main problem with Ezeiza, since nearly all international flights depart from Ezeiza while most domestic flights land at Aeroparque which makes Buenos Aires as a whole a terrible place to connect to another flight compared with other Latin American cities like Santiago, Lima, and Bogota where everything is centralized.

If I would have my way I would close Aeroparque (and redevelop it since it sits on prime real estate) and move all of the flights to Ezeiza to improve it's status as a connecting hub.

I posted this in the Buenos Aires Transport forum about extending the Subte line E to Ezeiza. Don't know if there's been any progress on it. I'm not sure getting a line out to AEP is a priority.



When I was there I used the shuttle buses run by Manuel Tienda Leon. It took a while to figure out where the buses leave the airport, but it's convenient enough, though you're at the mercy of local traffic. Their downtown terminal is across the plaza from Retiro station. I should have purchased a round trip ticket though as prices had gone up while I was there!

An interesting feature at Ezeiza that I have not seen elsewhere is the additional security screening at the boarding area for particular flights. What criteria do flights qualify for the extra screening? It looks like flights from gate 2 get the additional scrutiny as it's somewhat separated from the rest of the gates.
