We realize many are used to getting their air fares direct from the web. Flying to remote Patagonia can have a few more variables with connecting flights coming and going. We strongly recommend purchasing your air tickets from Gilda our Travel agent. She makes it easy and it helps us that we are all working with one source. It allows the exchile office to communicate with Gilda on your behalf. She is aware of all the details of flying to Patagonia and can hold your hand through the process. She is available to us 24/7. She also can make hotel reserves and arrange private transfers between airports and hotels. Most importantly in the rare case you run into any travel complications or wish to change your air ticket while in Patagonia she can do it. She is a valuable resource that allows us to help you while you are in route. She often has fares cheaper than the web on Aerolineas Argentina.
It is very important that your flight arrives in Buenos Aires or Santiago in time to make your connecting to Patagonia. Gilda makes sure that all your connections work both coming and going with the international carrier.

North American Travelers
From North America, we recommend Aerolineas Argentina, Delta, LATAM, and American Airlines. American shares frequent flier miles with Lan in both Chile and Argentina. American has proven more agile with baggage transfers and in the rare case of baggage delays. Direct flights on these carriers depart Dallas, Miami and Atlanta (Delta), and arrive early enough to connect straight to in-country flights. Air Canada has direct flights from Toronto.
From Europe, we recommend British Airways (code sharing with LATAM) from London, Aerolineas Argentina from Madrid and Air France from Paris. These flights usually are scheduled early enough for the legal connection time to Esquel, or Bariloche and to arrive in time for dinner in Trevelin.
We recommend Aerolineas Argentinas or LATAM
Australian, New Zealander, Asian Travelers
We recommend Cathay Pacific, Korean Air, and some destinations in Australia and New Zealand Quantas. These carriers code share with LATAM.
Russian travelers have traditionally come in via Europe to Buenos Aires. Follow the recommendation for the European travelers. Russian travelers should also be cautious of time zone changes and allow enough time to acclimate before partaking in strenuous physical activity.
