Getting there & around

British Airways operates direct flights to Buenos Aires, flying from Heathrow four times a week.

Average flight time: 13.5h.

European carriers such as Iberia and Air France offer one-stop flights via their European hubs, and American Airlines, Delta Air Lines and United Airlines via US hubs.

Buenos Aires is a wonderful city to explore on foot, although the transporta­tion system is cheap and efficient — as are taxis. Buy a SUBE card from any metro station or kiosk to use on buses, undergroun­d and for train connection­s to the suburbs. Take advantage of the extensive bike lane network: Free Ecobici bikes have drop-off stations across the city. buenosaire­

When to go

Buenos Aires is best enjoyed in its spring and autumn seasons (lateSeptem­ber to November and March to May, respective­ly). The summer months either side of New Year guarantee temperatur­es in the mid-30Cs, although December and January are often uncomforta­bly humid. Its Southern Hemisphere winters are temperate, with plenty of sunshine and blue skies.
