Bariloche Airport to Re-Open July 1

Bariloche Airport to Re-Open July 1

Please view our latest post for updated information on the status of the Bariloche Airport

Aerolineas Argentinas, Austral, and LAN have just announced that they will be resuming flights to the southern regions of Argentina for the first time since the eruption of the Puyehue Volcano on June 4. This depends on whether or not the volcanic ash continues to fall. If all goes well, flights to Bariloche will resume as early as July 1. This comes as a huge relief to all of us: the airlines, the citizens of Bariloche, tourists, and all of the tourism companies in the area.

To book your flight, use airport code BRC (Bariloche).

Update to a previous post: Both Chapelco and Las Leñas have just announced that they will be postponing their opening dates to July 2. Cerro Castor has also moved their opening date back to July 1. Cerro Catedral has not yet released an anticipated re-opening date, as they are waiting for more snow to fall. As it stands, Caviahue is the only open ski resort in Argentina.
