EZEIZA Airport brand new international terminal | Buenos Aires, Argentina | To my great surprise, two days ago while at EZEIZA International Airport to take my flight back to New York, I found out that the new Terminal B is ready and operative. I had to wait at the airport for over 3 hours, on a very warm summer day, where the air conditioning wasn’t working as it should, and I had nothing to do at the old Terminal A. So I decided to wonder around the airport, the Duty Free Shop and alleys of the airport. All of the sudden I found this new corridor, which had in the distance a new restaurant/cafe I had never seen before, so I walked towards it…. and WOW Airport heaven unfolded before my eyes.
To be compared with international airports worldwide, well made me feel out of Argentina right away, and those of you that have been to Terminals A and C, you guys know what I am talking about. So happy to see that my country has an International Airpot like this. Literally airport heaven, with lots of restaurants, cafes, a brand new Duty FREE Shop, lots of brand new and comfortable seating areas, full blasting air conditioning and the most important – well at least to me – lots of power outlets and FREE Speed WiFi.
Five new jet bridges have been added to the total of Ezeiza International Airport. Every month more and more airlines are adding Argentina and Buenos Aires, as their destination, like Emirates, Qatar or the lasted addition Turkish Airlines.
Other news are that from now on, you do not need to fill out any forms to enter to Argentina or to clear immigrations. Now all is done by BIOMETRICS. This has slowed down the process at immigrations, but hey not everything is perfect. I hope next step will be to have a few Global Entry Stands in the future, for Argentineans and/or members of the Mercosur. Finally for those of you having to pay the reciprocity FEE to enter to Argentina, know that they have launched this site, where you can do this tedious process upon your arrival, check this website @ Direccion Nacional de Migraciones.
New Airline Lounges, VIP Lounges and restaurants, and of course even a Starbucks soon the be open. So now you know, when you depart from Ezeiza International Airport, even if you gate is on the old section, take a walk to the new section. Hopefully soon, they will close the old section and do it all over again, or at least for now, on a date with 96 degress, the will have the air conditioning working, after all, Aeropuertos Argentina 2000, you guys collects ENOUGH money everyday to keep the air flowing for a few lives.
