How to Get to Buenos Aires, Argentina Using Miles

Posted on May 21, 2013 by in Travel Deals

This is a continuation of Destination Inspiration: Buenos Aires. Beyond the meat, tango, and wine lies a rich, vibrant culture. The plummeting peso and European-like vibe also make Buenos Aires an inviting alternative. Here's how to get there using your miles.

Delta Skymiles

Delta offers non-stop service from it's largest hub, Atlanta (ATL). From here, connections to 224 domestic locations are available.

Business class costs 100,000 miles round-trip while Economy requires 60,000 miles round-trip.

United Mileage Plus Miles

Non-stop service to EZE is available from New York (EWR) and Houston (IAH).

They require 60,000 miles in Economy and 100,000 miles for Business class at the Saver level.

You can also use Mileage Plus miles to fly with partners, Air Canada via Toronto (YYZ)*, Copa Airlines via Panama City (PTY), and Taca Peru via Lima.

*Note the Air Canada flight has a ground stop in Santiago de Chile.

American AAdvantage Miles

American operates non-stop routes to EZE from Dallas (DFW), New York (JFK), and Miami (MIA).

To redeem for round-trip travel with AAdvantage, 40,000 is required for Economy Off-Peak; 60,000 for Economy MileSAAver; 100,000 for Business SAAver; and 125,000 for First SAAver.

AAnytime Awards require 120,000 / 200,000 / 250,000 for Economy /Business / First.

[Off-Peak dates for South America Zone 2 again is between Mar. 1 – May 31 and Aug. 16 – Nov. 30]

Conclusion: Delta and United had spotty availability for Jan/Feb travel but better availability March to April. Both American and United have a lot more options for non-stop routes, though of the 3 mentioned, American's SAAver level was pretty sparse all around. United's Biz saver options seem better through EWR and through partners.
