Trelew Airport Mini Guide

Who Travels to Trelew Airport?
Interestingly, there are a number of Welsh travellers that fly there to see distant relatives whose ancestors moved to the region in the 19th century. It’s a commercial city whose primary focus isn’t tourism but there’s still plenty to keep the visitor occupied for several days. Wool processing is the main industry, accounting for nearly all of Argentina’s production and so you’ll find many beautiful woollen products on sale in the city’s shops.

How do I get to Trelew?
The airport has flights from three domestic carriers to many Argentinian cities but to get there from outside the country, you’ll have to fly into Buenos Aires and take a connection with Aerolineas or Sol Lineas. Many airlines from Europe like BA and Air France fly into Buenos Aires, so getting to the Argentine capital is easy.

What’s the Airport Like?
It’s jointly operated with the Argentine Air Force but you won’t see much evidence of their occupancy. It’s small but busy and has several flights each day. Facilities are a little light but certainly adequate for the short time you’ll be there. There are fewer security checks because it only handles domestic flights and whilst waiting you can do a little last minute shopping in the airport kiosk or grab a snack in the airport café. Car hire desks are easily located in the arrivals hall with collection of cars from the car hire lot directly outside.

Read our Frequently Asked Questions

With plenty to see around the city, Trelew Airport car hire will be an essential part of your holiday planning. How else will you get to see South America’s largest penguin colony? The weather can be a bit dicey here in winter and sometimes not much better in summer so we’d recommend a 4 x 4 if you’re going to do anything other than drive around town.

Whatever your plans are with your Trelew Airport hire car, you can be assured you won’t get a better deal than booking with Rhino.
