El Calafate Airport
El Calafate Airport customer review
Review by Peter R Thomas (United Kingdom) 6th December 2012
Lovely small airport with one of the best views of any I've ever visited. About 20km from the town but generally one plane at a time so queues transport etc not really an issue. Great coffee bar - go upstairs for views to die for (coffee is also good!). Planes can go early and beware of the winds when leaving. Sympathetically installed to harmonise with landscape (as much as an airport can!). Still need to pay in cash a departure tax - about 5GB Pounds. Also don't carry fresh food in hand luggage even if on an internal flight - it will be confiscated on arrival due to some strange Argentinean regulations.
