Airport in Buenos Aires - EZE Mar 26, 2008
I have been at the PISTARINI airport in Buenos Aires, best known as Ezeiza - code EZE. When I arrived there, the customs were ok, the only thing that took long was the baggage claim. Apparently it’s something that always happens. The locals weren’t happy, but were used to it.
After passing the passport’s control, you have to pass another control for the baggage. But you don’t have to open your bag.
When you are leaving, the check in is pretty easy. You have to pay taxes, but the funny thing is that you have to pay them separately. I mean. Before checking in you have to pay US$13 and after being checked in, you pay US$18.- Why don’t they charge everything at once????
Be ready and have your US$31 when you are leaving the country ;)
If you want to eat something, I’d recommend doing it before going through customs. After security in the international area, there are almost no places to eat. Besides the traditional duty free shops, you’d find one selling meat!!!! that's amazing!!!
Customs and security aren’t too bad. Just do the line, show your documents and put your carry on in the X-Ray machine. It’s not like in the States where you have to take off your shoes (I hate this) and take your laptop out of the case.
By the way, the airport is not so close to the city. The drive might take you around 45min.
