Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Thursday, 3 September 2009

LAN is to increase flights from Buenos Aires to the Argentine port city of Ushuaia to meet peak season demand for leisure cruises to Antarctica.

From October, 2009, until 30 April, 2010, the airline will operate daily flights to Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world and the closest port for the south polar cruises.

Three of the weekly LAN flights to Ushuaia - each Tuesday, Friday and Sunday - will operate nonstop from Aeroparque Airport, Buenos Aires.

Four flights - each Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday - will operate via Calafate, in Argentine Patagonia, the gateway to the spectacular Glaciers National Park, home to 47 glaciers.

Outside the peak cruising season, Ushuaia still has much to offer, including the magical Tierra del Fuego national park, rich with waterfalls, glaciers, forests and wildlife, and the skifields of Cerro Castor, a short drive from the city centre.

From the city there is also a 100 minute scenic rail journey aboard the End Of The World Train, while or for those who prefer a different style of adventure, Ushuaia is a tax free zone with great local and imported shopping bargains.

Fares from Australia to Ushuaia start at A$1,857 per person, ex Sydney and including taxes.

LAN flies daily from Australia to Santiago, Chile, with onward services throughout South America.
