As far as South American countries go, Argentina ranks up there with Brazil when it comes to destinations that are difficult and expensive to visit. While Brazil’s new E-Visa will soon make getting to Brazil much easier for American travelers, low-cost international airline Norwegian Air will soon offer more than 153 to and within Argentina in 2018.

This week, Argentina’s Ministry of Transportation gave Norwegian Air their blessing to operate both domestic and international flights to and from the country. The airline has yet to announce ticket prices, but they plan to offer direct flights between Buenos Aires and U.S. cities like Los Angeles and New York. Domestically, Norwegian has plans to serve 74 destinations in Argentina, with plans to connect travelers from 80 different locations to the South American destination by the end of 2018.

There are close to no low-cost airlines serving the country, which has given Aerolineas Argentinas the ability to control pricing for flights to and from the country with little competition.

Flights from the United States to Argentina are historically pricey. Norwegian and fellow low-cost carrier FlyBondi, which got approval to operate in Argentina over the summer, are sure to bring healthy competition that will likely get more travelers to the country at a much more pocket-friendly price.

Tourists are taking advantage of Argentina’s economic downturn.   With the country’s currency dropping almost 50 percent against the U.S. dollar this year, travelers are basking in some of Argentina’s luxuries like feasting on world-class steaks at Don Julio, a world-class steakhouse. A T-bone steak, usually a pricey menu choice, now only goes for 975 pesos, […]

The Allure Of Argentina

The Allure Of Argentina

South American culture is extremely rich and fascinating. During my travels in Argentina, I noticed that there weren’t very many Afro-Argentines, upholding the stereotype that Argentina is the “whitest county in South America.” Depending on who you ask, Afro-Argentines either died fighting the 1865 war against Paraguay, while the remaining fled to Brazil or that President Domingo […]
