Mini Guide to Salta Airport

Who Flies to Salta?
Travellers to Argentina who want to see something a little different are the ones who travel to Salta. People come from the capital Buenos Aires as well as Chile’s capital Santiago. When they arrive they find the best preserved colonial city in Argentina with hundreds of old buildings, carefully preserved in a city that’s known as ‘Salta the Beautiful’. Others who travel to Salta head straight out to find the hiking trails and ski resorts of the Andes.

How Easy is it to get to Salta Airport?
It’s not particularly easy as there are no direct flights from anywhere other than domestic airports and the sole international flight from Santiago in neighbouring Chile. Even the Buenos Aires route requires you to cross the capital from the international airport to the domestic airport before travelling on to Salta. The Santiago route is more challenging, requiring a flight from the UK to Paris, Madrid or Frankfurt before connecting to Santiago then on to Salta. Once at Salta Airport, car hire is your best option as buses are infrequent and taxis sometimes a rip-off.

Salta Airport

What is the Airport Like?
It’s quite a big airport with a terminal covering nearly two and a half thousand square metres, several long runways and handles 400,000 passengers each year. The airport had a new terminal built just over a decade ago to cope with increasing passenger numbers and to improve facilities. Today it has a very small selection of shops including one that sells model aeroplanes and a kiosk selling a selection of snacks and drinks, together with a limited range of local souvenirs. There’s a basic café there too which serves hot drinks and alcohol together with light cold snacks. There are no banking facilities but if you want help, there’s an airport information desk where you can find out flight and airport related information.
