Argentina is on most people’s South American wish list and it remains the number two destination in the region, but in spite of its popularity, arrivals since 2005 have not risen much above 4.5 million annually (4.6 million in 2009). Part of the reason has been a lack of direct flights from overseas. Another has been the unwieldy transfer of passengers between international flights at Ezeiza International Airport and domestic and regional flights at the Metropolitan Airport (both in Buenos Aires).

Those issues are, however, being addressed. In the past couple of years, new carriers have come on the scene (domestic and international), making Argentina more accessible to both international and regional visitors. Upgrades are also underway to ease passenger movements at the Buenos Aires gateways.
