Iguazu Airport

The Cataratas del Iguazú International Airport (IGR), sometimes referred to as the Mayor Carlos Eduardo Krause Airport, is the gateway airport for the Iguazu Falls and the nearby city of Puerto Iguazu on the Argentinian side of the border. This is a big travel hub for passengers hoping to glimpse the famed natural wonder of the Iguazu Waterfalls, and around 700,000 people take advantage of its positioning.

Don’t expect too much in the way of amenities, as this is a compact facility that has only a few basics. For getting out cash, changing it over, accessing WiFi, having a good dining selection, or shopping for gifts, you are better off waiting until you get to the city.

However, there is a VIP lounge, a few small souvenir and convenience shops, and at least one café where you can grab a snack. The airport is 20km from the city, and so only a half hour’s drive away, where you can utilise the facilities that you need.

Booking flights from Australia is easily done through carriers like LATAM, Air New Zealand, China Airlines, and Qantas. Save on your fare by signing up to price alerts that can notify you as soon as the rates go up or down.

Travel Information

·         Get on the Acceso Aeropuerto towards the RN101 and then follow the RN101 to the RN12, then turn left onto Av. Pres. Juan Domingo Perón, and then turn right on Av. Victoria Aguirre to get into town. Renting a car can be done in person at the airport, or online. You’ll find that organising your car online can save you a lot of time, and quite a bit of money.

·         There are minibus services you can make use of, and these are usually cheaper than taxis, at about 120ARS ($10) for a trip into town. However, if you’d like to find cheaper transport, but don’t fancy navigating the local system, you can arrange an airport transfer online very easily.

·         A taxi to Puerto Iguazu will cost you about 350ARS ($30) to get into the downtown area, with a fare to the falls themselves coming to about 700ARS ($60). These operate at the airport at all hours.
