Aerolineas Argentinas

Aerolineas Argentinas is the national carrier of Argentina and a proud member of the SkyTeam global alliance. From their central hub in Buenos Aires, they offer service to 35 destinations within Argentina, as well as international flights to the United States, South America, Europe, Australia, and the South Pacific.

Aerolineas Argentinas will only allow pets to travel as checked baggage in the cargo hold of the aircraft. Whether you are travelling internationally or regionally within Argentina, travelers are advised to carry proper documentation at all times: This might include microchip or tattoo identification, as well as any up-to-date certification from a veterinarian confirming that your pet is in good health and is rabies-free. Entering Argentina (or any country) with the proper documentation may prevent an unnecessary quarantine period for your animal companion.

Fees for travelling with your pet will vary. If you are travelling within Argentina and most of South America a weight concept (charge per kilogram) fee will be applied. If you are travelling to any destination between South America and any other international destination, a piece concept (flat rate) fee will be applied.
